School Sends Girl Home Because of Her Unkempt Dreadlocks (Video)

Girl sent home for wearing dreads

A 6-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma girl was sent home from school because her unkempt dreadlocks violated the school’s dress code.

Tiana Parker’s father, Terrance Parker, told KOKI that his daughter was pulled out of class at Deborah Brown Community School for having the “wrong hairstyle.”

“She’s always presentable,” explained Parker, who is a barber by trade. “I take pride in my kids looking nice.”

“They didn’t like my dreads,” the little girl cried during an interview with a KOKI reporter.

Girl sent home for wearing dreads

The Charter school student body is majority black, and the curriculum prepares students for the real world, aka the workplace. Students are taught to take pride in their appearance which includes grooming.

The school’s policy states faddish hairstyles can cause a distraction in a learning environment. At the Charter school, children are taught to look presentable as they will be required to look when they enter the workforce.

It is noted that the school’s well-groomed principal wears her natural hair tucked under a tidy twist out wig.

From Kamoymagazine.com:

Officials from Deborah Brown Community School in Tulsa declined speak to the station on camera, but the school policy states that “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”

KOKI reported that the “school feels that could distract from the respectful and serious atmosphere it strives for.”

“She went to the school last year and didn’t have any problems,” Terrance Parker pointed out. “It hurt my feelings to the core.”

And from the way that 7-year-old Tiana wept as she spoke to KOKI, it was obvious that her feelings were hurt as well.

“They didn’t like my dreads,” she said. “I think that they should let me have my dreads.”

Tiana has now been enrolled in a new school, which welcomes her hairstyle.”

Take your kid to another school where they would accept it! Its just like the military, you can’t abide by the rules, take your behind somewhere else.

    Sorry mama, but life is teaching you a valuable lesson. Not everything will go your way so always have a back up plan or an alternative.

    FYI: The rule is offensive but they made that rule and if they’re not getting funds from the state, county, or city, then…unfortunately it is what it is.

    chiiiiiiile. like i said, we aint raising no new slaves over this way. i cant see why any other parent would leave their child in that school and think its emotionally safe. if they will do it to one for that reason they will do it for yours for another frivolous reason. dont believe me just watch. its like saying i only got cancer right *here* and thinking it wont affect the whole body.

    Yes :hi: Big fan btw. Been following you on twitter since you had that warning that non industry folks would not be allowed on your page :yes: Were regressing as a society. As a Black society :tea: Black is beautiful. I read a story where the school told a little girl her afro puffs violated policy. They retracted and revised their policies after some pressure from he community. People, including our people teach us that we are not good enough. We are less than. We start to agree over time and conform. We change our hair, lighten our skin. We need to nip this in the bud. At the right time. This is a baby. She needs to know that her hair is beautiful in its natural state. Unkept or not. Thats another problem. Not wanting to go outside if we arent beat from head to toe. Baby girl cant go play in the front yard unless her hair is on point. All that attention paid to a childs head, all the extra strain, braid and re braiding, the fear of not wanting your childs hair to be judged as unkept-is probably a contributing factor to why so many of us grow up to be bald. Baby pictures be looking all cute. Had pigtails as a child. Long ones at that, but by the time 16 rolls around cant even get your hair into a ponytail without the assistance of clips, brown jail, and extensions #ijs

    Missouri man exposed 300-plus to HIV, police say

    (CNN) — Prosecutors in rural Missouri have charged a man with exposing his partner to HIV and say he may have exposed more than 300 other people to the virus that causes AIDS.

    David Mangum told police he had at least that many unprotected sexual encounters with people he met online or in parks since he was diagnosed with HIV in 2003, Dexter, Missouri, detective Sgt. Corey Mills told CNN. Mills said it will be difficult to find and warn those people, since Mangum “usually only knew his partners’ first names.”

    Mangum was arrested after his former partner told police that Mangum had lied to him about his status, a police affidavit states. He was arraigned Thursday morning in Stoddard County, about 160 miles south of St. Louis, with bail set at $250,000. The former partner has tested positive for HIV, according to police.

    Mangum, 36, told police that between 50 and 60 of his partners lived in Stoddard County, according to court records.

    Knowingly exposing someone to HIV without their consent is a felony under Missouri law that can bring prison terms up to 15 years. Infecting someone can bring a life term.

    YES, her hair looks like crap. Let’s be real. Dreads are not a NATURAL state of hair. I believe AFROS are to an extent but not dreads.

She BEEN violating school policy is my point. She came there violating policy… but now its an issue? Nobody said nothing!

    ——
    Technical manipulation is required to maintain the dreads, not for them to form, thus, the formation of the dreads is natural. And I know that for a fact. Both my brothers have dreads. My uncle and family friends in Jamaica have them as well. The two rastas that live three doors down from my grandmom all my life, have them. So I know. And honestly, if any teacher, school, or anyone else does not call me about my 6 year old not following the dress code, I’m gonna be mad. 6 year olds don’t do their own hair. The parents do, so address them.

How you gonna have an uproar (the fam in the story, not you) and get angry about rules you already knew about probably on day one? Then try to get everyone emotionally vested with the crying and all.

    True! and if HE is the one doing her hair then that explains why ppl might think it looks like “crap” (shudders).

    to me personally, it looks fine. when my child’s hair is frizzy its because she is having a good time and living the carefree life that she is supposed to. i love it for a baby to look like a baby or a child to look like a child.

Why not write letters to change policies if your school isn’t offering SINGAPORE math and muliti-language programs in your elementary schools? Why not get angry and ish if your schools don’t have enough IPADS and computers like the rich, white neighborhoods. THEN YOU CAN WRITE ALL THE LETTERS YOUR WANT. But when mofos start talking about hair and dress codes and ish, everybody want to get indignant and getting their emotional guns out. C’mon!

    Moving on serious face :eek:
    While I do understand the theory of its their rules you don’t have to attend or join and I made this blanket statement yesterday— I do find it problematic that her hair which was not in dreds was deemed distracting. What style should her hair have been in? While we do not know if her hair is always groomed as he stated it seems as if they wanted it a specific way. Permed? Long braids? A curly fry wig like Principal Idiot? I feel like this wasn’t about dreds because lesbi honest…. That baby had small hopes but it was not full dreds :lolsign:

    You are right, it’s not fair. THE BS we endure to work 3 times as hard for half of the respect and opportunities but that’s why its so important to teach our kids to play the game and play it hard. Wear yo dreads and whatever you want when you own that business when you grow up. Wear yo fro when they calling DOCTOR. SOANDSO through the hospital. It is what it is. But we can’t go giving energy to some thorns. We can’t fight every war. So we pick and choose and battles and give energy to the roses where we can plant a real garden in the future.

    because at least in THIS case, the girl wasnt kicked out of school for anything academic. the school focused on her hair. thats why the response is regarding her hair.

    my kids’ school teaches every single lesson in english, spanish and french by the way. they have EXTREMELY high test scores and let the children wear their hair any way the want to. nitpicking at hair = lower self image/esteem = time taken away from academics = failure on all levels (social, academic, etc). the school has insulted its students on a personal level thats why it stings the way it does.

    To be honest, this is just as important as schools being under funded or money being misused.

    Mind you her own damn hair in a fad as well, but ok. Not only that, but why have these rules to make these kids believe that dreads or whatever will not be accepted in the workplace? Because you can wear your dreads to work. And they can’t tell you that you can’t (well at least not in here. The ethics department in here don’t play that shyt)

    When little girls cry I want to fight somebody, point em’ out baby. Her Daddy did her hair and as long as it doesn’t stink or has lice falling from it, it’s a non mf factor to her education. Her hair is matted, she needs some sort of detangler, oil and parts. As much as I’m pro natural, at that age hair is hard to manage if you are not experienced with extra tight curl patterns.

    …but she’s not in corporate America. She’s a child, and she’ll have plenty of time to “conform” to someone else’s standards.

    Like others have said, if she builds her own business, she won’t have to conform to someone else’s standards or values unless it pertains directly to their employment or the public in general, i.e. someone working in the food industry or such with dirty, unkempt hair. This child is in school, and she’s a straight A student. This school of Black administrators have their heads up their behinds. JMO.

    The problem, like others said, is how they went about it. I wonder if this school would accept a disabled child or another thing they deem “distracting.”
