"7 Year Old Girl Sent Home In Tears Because Her Natural Hair Is Against School Policy"
The Deborah Brown Community School’s policy against “faddish” hair — “such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks” — led to a 7-year-old girl being sent home from school in tears. Tiana Parker’s father, Terrance Parker, told KOKI that he was forced to pull his daughter out of the Tulsa charter school after administrators hassled the family about her appearance. Parker, who’s a barber, said school officials at Deborah Brown told him that Tiana’s hair didn’t look presentable.
Tiana, a straight A student, wears a different school uniform now, but the same hair style, which looks perfectly fine according to her new school.
The school’s dress code states “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”
