I stumbled upon an story today that reported a young girl in Florida was going to be expelled from school because her (natural) hair was distracting. I thought it a bit odd, so I jumped in to find out more, and what I read was disconcerting, to say the least.
It turns out that the Faith Christian Academy in Orlando, Florida, has some kind of policy on hair, which states that it has to be the natural color and must not be a distraction. But what, pray tell, constitutes a “distraction?’ Well, according to the story, that would be when other kids start to make fun of something (or someone) for the difference in style. If that’s the case, then the school should be ashamed. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
