South Carolina School Suspends Girl For Dyeing Her Hair
GREER, S.C. (CBS Charlotte) — A teenage girl was suspended from school for dyeing her hair.
Riverside Middle School in Greer, S.C., last week gave 13-year-old Hannah Adams an in-school suspension for dyeing parts of her hair red, according to WHNS-TV.
The station reports the school dress policy states that “clothing and/or hair should not disrupt the educational process. Non-human hair color is not permitted.”
“[The administrators] keep going back to the handbook and going back to the policy and it should be that way across the board or it should not be that way at all,” Kimberly Adams, Hannah’s mother, told WHNS.
Hannah and her mother both told the station they have previously seen students with different hair color who did not face disciplinary action.
CBS Charlotte has reached out to the Greenville County School District for comment.
