A Texas grandmother, Randi Woodley, is angry that her grandson’s school told him that his long hair violated the dress code and that if he didn’t cut it, he would have to wear a dress.
Woodley says that when she took Michael, age 4, to meet his teacher, the principal’s office asked her to visit to discuss the situation.
“I was told that I needed to see the principal. so I went to the principal’s office where she explained to me that my grandson’s hair was too long,” explained Woodley.
During the meeting, Woodley addressed Superintendent, Dr. J.P. Richardson, claiming during a one on one meeting with him, he gave her 3 options.
“He told me that I could either cut it, braid it and pin it up, or put my grandson in a dress and send him to school, and when prompted my grandson must say he’s a girl,” said Woodley.
Woodley said when she pushed back on the school’s dress code, which states that a male student’s hair “shouldn’t extend past the top of a t-shirt collar,” she was given three choices from the district’s superintendent.
“And the superintendent then gave me three options. He told me that I could either cut it, braid it and pin it up, or put my grandson in a dress and send him to school, and when prompted, my grandson must say he’s a girl,” Woodley explained. [iHeartRadio]
Woodley isn’t the only parent with this problem. Other students have had the same issues with the dress code, which many parents claim is discriminatory. Another parent,
KETK-TV talked to Kambry Cox, another parent, who was told her son couldn’t put his dreadlocks in a ponytail.
Woodley wants the school board to change its dress code and promised to attend every meeting until they make changes.
Why are they worried about his hair when they need to be worried about the kids that are being bullied that might snap and shoot everyone up. I don’t think it’s nice to tell a kid it’s something wrong with their hair or outfit they need to grow, be creative and express themselves.
