Students suing Texas school district that bans long hair on boys
October 25, 2021
Seven students are suing a Texas school district over its policy banning boys from having long hair, with violators potentially being suspended or kicked off campus.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas and the ACLU Women's Rights Project filed a lawsuit on behalf of the seven students, ages seven to 17, against Magnolia Independent School District.
The complaint says a 9-year-old boy was kept in in-school suspensions for more than a month and removed from campus before the boy eventually dropped out of school. He is currently homeschooled.
