Father angry after teacher cuts daughter’s hair

AP Top News

MICHIGAN (AP) – A Michigan father has moved his 7-year-old daughter from one school to another after the child’s hair was cut on separate occasions by a classmate and a teacher.

Jimmy Hoffmeyer said Monday he also is considering taking his daughter, Jurnee, out of Mount Pleasant Public Schools and enrolling her in a private school.

Hoffmeyer says that on March 24, Jurnee arrived home with much of the hair on one side missing, cut by a classmate on the school bus.

Two days later — after complaining to the principal and having Jurnee’s hair styled with an asymmetrical cut to make the differing lengths less obvious — she arrived home with the hair on the other side cut by a teacher who tried to “to even it out.”
