Florida 12 year old Vanessa VanDyke and student at Faith Christian Academy in Orlando has been given an ultimatum from her school that she’s been attending since the 3rd grade. Cut her hair or leave Faith Christian Academy why?

The school has a policy on dress and appearance. It reads as follows: “Hair must be a natural color and must not be a distraction,” and goes on to state examples that include, but are not limited to, mohawks, shaved designs and rat tails.”

Vanessa’s mother states that “There have been bullies in the school, There have been people teasing her about her hair, and it seems to me that they’re blaming her. A distraction to one person is not a distraction to another.”

Little Vanessa said that the teasing/bullying started with other students but now has accelerated to some school administrators singling her out.
If Vanessa was your daughter would you allow her to still attend this school after the controversy?
