Dreadful 

Terrance Parker told KOKI Tulsa that Deborah Brown Community School singled out Tiana for wearing a dreadlock hairstyle to class, something the straight- A student also did the previous year with no problem. However, the dress code, in writing and quoted by the station, is clear: “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, af- ros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”

Papa Parker got smart — the only thing his daughter changed was her uniform, the station reported.

She’s attending a new school.
