12-YEAR OLD BLACK GIRL THREATENED WITH EXPULSION FOR.... HER "PUFFY" HAIR
A black girl attending a private school in Florida was told to change her hair's naturally "puffy" style or ... be expelled.
The 12-year-old was told by administrators she had this week to decide whether to tame her large hair or leave the school because it violates a policy against "distracting" hair styles.
Her mother said her daughter's hair has been the same all school year but was only brought up by administrators after she complained some children were teasing or bullying her daughter over the hair style.
The girl said she's aware her hair prevents her from having the look other students have but she's happy with her style.
The school's dress code states: "Hair must be a natural color and must not be a distraction."
The family hasn't decided what to do next.
