- Teen was suspended from school over a simple haircut
- The boy had two small lines cut on the side of his head
- School administrator argued the strange haircut went against their code of conduct
- The teen’s father doesn’t agree with the school’s position
A sixth grade student was recently suspended from school because of his haircut and general code of conduct.
Xavier Davis, who reportedly went to Cedar Bayou Junior High School, had two tiny lines cut on the side of his head in what appeared like an attempt to look stylish.
Strangely, the boy had been wearing his new hairstyle for months. He probably thought there was nothing wrong with having a special haircut, slightly different from what every other student had. But it turned out he was wrong.
"Letters, symbols, and designs beyond a single straight line, which draw attention to an individual, shall not be permitted. The administrator or supervisor reserves the right to determine if a hairstyle is disruptive to the educational process," states the school’s code of conduct.
The boy reportedly said his school issued him with a letter and instructed him to go and fix his hair before he could be allowed back to resume learning. But his father, Matt Davis, was not amused by the reason given by the school for suspending his son.
"He has had his hair cut like for six months and now all of a sudden it's a problem? I don't know if having one line or two is a distraction to learning. It's not a distraction to me. It's nonsense. We send him here to get an education. It's not about his haircut," the father lamented.
The boy was, however, allowed to resume his classes after his mom fixed the troublesome haircut.
