This School Shaved A Biracial Girl's Hair Without Her Mother's Permission

By Mustafa Gatollari

7-year-old Tru Robinson is an elementary school student with naturally curly hair.

Hair that officials at her school apparently deemed was unhygienic, so they shaved it.

Denise Robinson, Tru's mother, however, says that the school is failing to provide any explanation as to why they shaved her daughter's head without either her or Tru's consent. She disputes the notion that there was anything unhygienic about her daughter's hair. And she's suing the school.
