This 8th grader was put on the defensive for his football team hairstyle.
Dustin Reader is nuts about football -- the Cincinnati Bengals, in particular. In order to show his devotion to his favorite team, the Ohio teen had the Bengals' team insignia -- the letter "B" -- shaved into his hair. His school, however, gave him an "F."
Now the 14-year-old has been suspended from school because officials at Garfield Middle School say that his extreme hairstyle is "too distracting." Hmm, guess all the news coverage the school is getting for their decision won't be too distracting, right?
School officials say he will be allowed back into school when his hair grows back, or when he changes his hairstyle.
What do you think? Is the school's decision out-of-bounds? Or is the principal a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan?
