Child with Long Hair Not Allowed in Kindergarten

Folks in Needville, Texas are protesting bending the school district's rules to let a five-year-old boy with braids enroll in kindergarten. Keeping with his Native American heritage, Adriel Arocha explains that he has never cut his hair "because it tells me how long I've been here." Despite the family's tradition and beliefs, the school board requires that boys wear their hair no longer than their collar. Locals think that making an exception to this rule could lead to other problems.
