Speaking of kindergarten: Mohawk go home

An Ohio kindergartner was forced to stay home from class after a school district said he couldn’t attend – because of his mohawk haircut.

Officials from the Clark Shawnee School District in Springfield, Ohio, sent 5-year-old Ethan Clos home on Wednesday, saying his haircut was a disturbance to teachers and students in the classroom, WHIO TV 7 reports.

Superintendent Gregg Morris said the mohawk haircut violated district rules on dress and grooming that is disruptive to the education process.

None of my sons has chosen to sport a Mohawk— yet. How about yours? Do you agree with the school district's decision?
