After an outcry over an Ohio charter school’sÂ attempt to ban “afro-puffs and small twisted braids,” the institutionâ€™s dean has apologized.
On June 14, officials at Horizon Science Academy in Lorian sent a letter to parents, explaining the new dress code. Among other rules, the updated regulations said that “afro-puffs and small twisted braids, with or without rubber bands are NOT permitted.”
The backlash prompted the schoolâ€™s administration to send out a letter of apology on Saturday, explaining that the ban would not be included in a final version of the schoolâ€™s new dress code. The letter said the school didn’t haveâ€śany intention of creating bias towards any of our students.â€ť
