Debate is being sparked after a student in Dekalb County High School in Smithville was sent home due to breaking the dress code with her “distracting” hair color.
The 16-year-old student claims she’s had the same exact hair color for four years, and the school waited until Day 3 of the new schoolyear to send her home.
According to Fox 17, she says,
“Now people are asking why did I have to undo my hair? Why did I have to dye it? Now people are getting distracted. No one cared before. Now people are getting in an uproar because everybody is having to do it. Everybody is having to wear different clothes, different hairstyles, different hair colors.”
Look in the video above. THAT’s distracting?! Really?? I once had hair as red as a fire engine, and it wasn’t even that “distracting.”
