Schools allow military haircuts
Placeholder Image
In response to what’s become a full-blown controversy over a haircut, Director of Schools Bobby Cox says no school in the system prohibits military haircuts. Cox sent out a press release Wednesday specifically stating, “Neither Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary, nor any school in Warren County School District, prohibits military haircuts.”The statement comes three days after an article in the Southern Standard where local mother Amy Stinnett said she allowed her son to cut his hair in what she called a “high and tight,” a basic military cut. Stinnett said her son was threatened with school suspension by Bobby Ray principal Monti Hillis due to the cut being distracting to other students.The story has sparked outrage with several people calling the Standard in support of the student.
