Honor Roll Student Faced Suspension Over Part in Haircut
Rashaad Hunter, an honor roll student at Greenwood Elementary School in Bessemer, was threatened with suspension over a part in his hair. Didn’t matter that Rashaad was an honor roll student and had never been in trouble, the school deemed the part in his head a design and therefore against school regulations.
Superintendent Fred Primm Jr. said, “We allow small parts, but not excessively long parts that are done as designs. That part in that young man’s hair would be considered a design,” Primm said. He then added, “The principal has decided not to suspend the child.”
