A what-the-heck kind of story comes from the Seattle School District where a student was removed from class for wearing olive oil-based hair products.

Let’s be clear that we’re getting only the father’s side of the story. He is the author of the story in the above link and a brief mention in KIRO TV’s newscast doesn’t go beyond his version. The teacher isn’t talking. The school district clammed up when the parents hired a lawyer. But when the district was talking, it didn’t dispute the father’s version of events and called the teacher’s actions unacceptable.

Was the only solution for a teacher sickened by the smell emanating from the hair of her 8-year-old African American student to remove her from class?
