A charter school in Tulsa, Oklahoma has sent a child home for her hairstyle, according to NewsOne.
7-year-old Tiana Parker has dreadlocks and according to the schools dress code, it is unacceptable.
The Deborah Brown Community School is a charter and there they have their own rules. The school claims that her dreadlocks are a distraction and that Tiana is not presentable.
The schools dress code rule clearly states that “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.â€ Although theÂ dreadlocks are not allowed, Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, claims that the school did not hassle him about the hairstyle the previous year that Tiana attended.
