Texas 4-year-old forced to stay home from school

A Texas student is being forced to stay home from school due to the length of his hair.

Four-year-old Jabez Oates’s school has a strict policy for boy’s hair length. It has to be above the eyes and ears. Barbers Hill has no intention of bending the policy for Jabez. His mother Jessica was told she would need a letter citing religious or cultural exception, and until then to keep her son at home.

His mother plans to fight the policy and get her son back to school as soon as possible.
