The Deborah Brown Community School’s policy against “faddish” hair — “such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks” — led to a 7-year-old girl being sent home from school in tears. Tiana Parker’s father, Terrance Parker, told KOKI that he was forced to pull his daughter out of the Tulsa charter school after administrators hassled the family about her appearance. Parker, who’s a barber, said school officials at Deborah Brown told him that Tiana’s hair didn’t look presentable. “She’s always presentable. I take pride in my kids looking nice,” Parker told KOKI. “She went to the school last year and didn’t have any problems,” he added, telling a reporter that Tiana’s hairstyle had not changed. “It hurt my feelings to the core,” Parker said as he comforted his visibly upset daughter. Tiana, a straight-A student, has been enrolled at another school that welcomes her new hairstyle.
