Tulsa girl changes school over hairstyle

no hairstyle

TULSA, Okla.- A 7-year-old girl was forced to change schools after she was told her hairstyle didn’t fit the school’s dress code.

Hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks and other faddish styles are listed as unacceptable in the charter school’s handbook.

The family says their daughter attended the charter school with dreadlocks last year with no problem.

However, they say they are tired of fighting so they have decided to pull her out and send her to a new school.
