Should Frenship ISD Punish a 6-Year-Old for His Long Hair? [POLL]
Yesterday on the show I told you about a 6-year-old boy at the Frenship ISD elementary school who is in a little trouble. According to reports, the 6-year-old will serve in-school suspension until his mother gets his hair cut. The mother is refusing to cut the boy’s blonde hair, which sits right below his shoulders, due to spiritual beliefs. The mother claims that she and her fiance follow Native American spirituality practices that include males not being able to cut their hair.
Frenship ISD will allow for a waiver of the dress code, but only if the mother provides documentation that they follow such a belief. According to the report, this isn’t the first time a school district in Texas has gone after a student who had long hair due to religious reasons. After 2 years, a Lipan school lost their court case against the family.
So what do you think should happen here? Let us know in today’s KFYO Poll of the Day.
