- Update on the case about the 7-year-old girl who was told that her locs violated the school’s dress code. Both educators and legislators are said to be reviewing the policy after a huge backlash against the school.
Controversy continues to brew over an Oklahoma charter school’s dress code banning “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks and other faddish styles.”
The policy rose to national prominence last week when 7-year-old Tiana Parker spoke out about being reprimanded by Deborah Brown Community School officials for wearing dreadlocks.
State legislators are trying to coordinate a review of the policy.
“We are working to bring the school administrators and board members together with the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus members to coordinate a review of these policies,” said state Senator Kevin Matthews (D-Tulsa) in a statement released to media. “Although direct legislative action is not an option of addressing the issue in the short term, school policies can be addressed, reviewed or changed by the Deborah Brown Community School’s internal board.”
Anastasia Pittmann (D-Oklahoma City), who chairs the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus, said she also wants to review the policy.
“We always want to promote culturally and linguistically sensitive policies because we believe all children can learn,” Pittman noted in a statement.
