The two-month battle is over ... for now.
We told you about 4-year-old Taylor Pugh, who was suspended from pre-kindergarten because of his long hair.
At Floyd Elementary School in Texas, boys' hair must be kept out of the
eyes and cannot extend below the bottom of their earlobes or over the collar
of a dress shirt. Since Taylor had long hair, he was forced to spend his days in the library, serving an in-school suspension since November.
But the hair dispute has finally been resolved ... with a little help from the French. French braids, that is.
Superintendent Linda Henrie said that Taylor could return to class with braids, as long as they were close to the head and didn't end in a ponytail or bun.
Taylor's mother, Liz Taylor, tried cornrows first, but they hurt Taylor's head. She told the Dallas Morning News she tried French braids next.
She said it took about an hour, but hopes it will go faster as she becomes more experienced.
Taylor's family still plans to appeal the Mesquite school board's refusal to give him a dress code exemption.
"I don't want this to happen to another child," she said.
What do you think about the school's decision?
