Description

"The ACLU of Louisiana has come to the defense of a Rastafarian boy who has been suspended from school and forbidden to return until he cuts his dreadlocks. The boy was sent home from South Plaquemines High School when classes resumed Aug. 8 because his dreadlocks extended beyond the collar of his shirt, in apparent violation of the school dress code. After he returned to school the following week with his hair pinned up, school officials told the student his dreadlocks remained in violation.” * Ben Mankiewicz (http://www.twitter.com/benmank77) and Ana Kasparian (http://www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian) discuss. *Read more here from http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/08/26/louisiana-school-hits-rastafarian-teen-with-unlimited-suspension-over-his-dreadlocks/
