“First day of school and I have to withdrawal my son” – Clinton Stanley Sr.
According to the Miami Herald,
“A father said he was forced to withdraw his son from a private Christian school in Apopka after he was told his first-grader, who has dreadlocks, would have to get a haircut to attend.
Clinton Stanley Sr. posted an eight-minute video of his conversation with school officials at A Book’s Christian Academy near Orlando Monday morning after showing up with his son for his first day of school.” – Carli Teproff
The School Has Faced Backlash Since Clinton’s Video Was Released.
Sue Book, a school administrator told The Washington Post…
“They’re calling me everything under the sun,” she told The Post. “I’m getting it from everywhere, all parts of the country. Most of them do not speak intelligently. I bear with them until they start using the four-letter words. Then I’ll lay the phone down and play Christian music.”
“Book said the family was given a copy of the parent handbook when they enrolled, which spells out as plain as day: “All boys hair must be a tapered cut, off the collar and ears. There are to be no dreads, Mohawks, designs, unnatural color, or unnatural designs.”
Stanley said he’d never seen the book before Monday, on what was supposed to be C.J.’s first day of first grade.” – Avi Selk, The Washington Post
