A mother was appalled when her 4 year-old son was kicked out of school for having long hair. Jessica Oates could not understand why Jabez was not allowed because of his hair length, she said it was his hair and he should be allowed to wear it however he wants. Her son was confused and didn’t understand either, he knew his hair was different from the other boys but that never bothered him, in fact he loves his hair.
The school said that they saw no religious or cultural beliefs behind males having long hair, so they decided to kick him out as it went against their rules of boys having short hair. Jessica has decided to take action as she does not want to let the school get away with it, she hopes to get her son back into the school.
