8-Year-Old Girl Denied School Picture Because Of Red Highlights In Hair

A Michigan charter school has stirred up controversy after blocking an eight-year-old student from getting her school picture taken – because she had red highlights in her hair.

The 8-year-old Marian Scott’s highlights violated their dress code policy, which requires students to have natural hair tones. The school says a recording outlining the policy was sent out on Sunday night.

But Marian’s father, Doug Scott, called the decision “upsetting” and wants to know why he wasn’t notified until Marian got home from school.
