A female black student was removed from class because of her “unnatural hair” at Christ The King Middle School in Terrytown, Louisiana.
School administrators said the girl was sent home for her hair extensions, which violated the school policy of “natural” hair only, notes WGNO.
School administrators said they informed the crying girl and her mother that the hairstyle was not in compliance, “and she agreed to change her child’s hair in order to comply with the policy.”
Archdiocese Catholic Schools Superintendent RaeNell Billiot Houston said the girl was still not in compliance after having her hair redone:
She made an appointment with a hair stylist to do so. The child had her hair re-done on Friday of last week and reported to school today. The new hair style was still not in compliance with the new hairstyle policy. At that point the parent made the decision to remove her child from the school.
