Cut

Jessica Stirewalt says she got a call from her daughter Jesslyn's assistant teacher telling she'd cut the girl's hair because Jesslyn had gotten food in it. The Rowan County, North Carolina, mother wasn't pleased. She was less pleased when Jesslyn, who is 7 and has Down syndrome, got home. Stirewalt found that about eight inches of her hair had been cut. Stirewalt says she also got a letter from the teacher saying they cut the girl's hair because she would not stop taking it down.
