It looks like the school heard the uproar and is rethinking that policy. I thought it was funny that they banned 'twist braids' but that hair beads are allowed, where are you supposed to put your beads if you aren't allowed to wear small braids?! Also that was one of the few policy points with a giant, all-caps NOT, who thought that was a good idea?

They got rid of the ban and said that it was a rough copy of the dress code. They also said that they weren't targeting a specific group and were sorry for the misunderstanding....which is complete bull because if this ban was lifted they would face a big lawsuit.
I think that was so racist. How could you not target a specific group with a ban like that? If that's the case, ban weave too. I know of other races besides African Americans who were weave. If your going to make a ban for the dress code, be all inclusive. So glad I don't go to that school.
I really would be interested in learning the administration's reason for the ban. This of course wasn't a mistake or a rough draft, they just thought they could institute this and no one would say anything about it. The question then becomes was it an issue of ignorance or deliberate prejudice.
That is absolutely disgusting. How anyone, male or female, decides to wear their hair is none of the school's business. And their "clarification" is complete nonsense. If I had a child in that school, there would be an immediate transfer. Most of those personal appearance rules are ridiculous.
