A student has been suspended over Mesquite Independent School District‘s famously strict dress code.

Agnew Middle School officials told seventh-grade Robert Blythe Jr. that his high-top haircut was too long on top.

His grandmother said that she went to take him to get a  Haircut this weekend, but school administrators said on

Monday that his hair was still too high.

“We measured it. It’s not even an inch and a half on the tape measure. They wanted him to shave his head, and we

shouldn’t have to.” said his grandma

The school district said he has a part in his hair, which is considered a design. “Designs” are not allowed, according to the district’s Code of Conduct Handbook.

What do you think about his haircut?  Does it look offensive to you?
