This Is Crazy: 12-Year-Old Suspended For Haircut
A 12-year-old middle schooler is in the news this morning for being suspend for his haircut. Xavier Davis, a 12-year-old student in the Houston school system, was sent to in-school suspension for having two lines cut into the side of his hair.
The child’s parents state that this is not the first time that Xavier has had his hair cut like this, and do not think that it is fair that their child can not receive his education because of a haircut.
The district code of conduct states:
“Letters, symbols, and designs beyond a single straight line which draw attention to an individual shall not be permitted. The administrator/supervisor reserves the right to determine if a hairstyle is disruptive to the educational process.”
After spending one day in in-school suspension, Xavier’s mother was forced to use a permeant marker to color in the second line.
