Bad Hair Daze, Reprise 0

Students’ hair continues to make grown-ups stupid.

A father in Oklahoma said this week that he was forced to pull his daughter out of classes after the charter school she was attending sent her home for having the wrong hairstyle.

She’s a seven-year-old African American child who had dreadlocks .

The school’s policy states

“hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”

Of the ones listed, the only one that I could consider “faddish” is the mohawk, since it seems to reappear for a short while every other generation.

Oddly enough, the last time I saw a mohawk, it was worn by the virtuoso guest pianist at a concert by the Virginia Beach Symphony.

I am skeptical that this policy is “colorblind.”

I am certain that it is stupid.
