Bad Hair Day

|

Monica Equivel said her son Kobi has had the same haircut for five months, but recently an assistant principal at Coronado Middle School in Texas told the boy the line shaved on the side of his head was a distraction. That principal then colored in the line with a marker. When the mother complained, she says administrators told her the haircut could be considered gang-related. School officials are refusing to comment on the matter except to say the dress code forbids designs shaved into the hair.
