Dad’s fury as her eight-year-old daughter is BANNED from having a school photo because she had red streaks in her hair

A DAD has slammed a school for banning his eight-year-old daughter from having a photo taken because of red streaks in her hair.

Marian Scott said she cried and felt singled out after she wasn’t allowed to have her school photo taken at Paragon Charter Academy in Jackson, Michigan.

Her dad Doug Scott said is was “upsetting” his daughter was treated in that way and that him and Marian’s mum approved of her hairstyle.

“All of this is uncalled for, they didn’t even call us,” he told WILX.

“Marian didn’t leave the house, go on the street and get this done on her own, no – she’s eight years old, we did this ourselves in our own home and there’s no way I felt like this would happen.”

Doug says his anger is compounded by Marian being told she couldn’t get her picture taken – but was allowed to return to class.

“If they would have reached out to us and say come get her…she’s got a hair issue, we need you to change it, that’s not allowed,” he said.

“I would have been fine with why this happened but they didn’t reach out to us.

“They let her stay in school… so if she’s not a disruption to the class, then why is she a disruption to the picture?”

The Paragon Charter Academy handbook says that students’ hair colour must be natural tones to get their picture taken.

The school says it did send out a recorded message the Sunday before photos were taken which went the dress code policy.

Principal Ben Kriesch said students with a hair colour or style violation are given a week or so to get it corrected, which is why Marian was allowed to remain in class.

Marian isn’t being taken out of the school and returned on Monday morning for the first time since the incident with all black hair.

Her family plans on getting her picture taken on re-take day on November 12th.
