The mother of a White Utah teenager claims her daughter is being discriminated against at her charter school for sporting dreadlocks, according to Fox 13.

Tonya Judd told the television news station that she received a phone call from the principal about her daughter, Caycee, saying the girl had to remove her dreadlocks because they violate the school dress code.

Caycee, an eighth-grader at the Lincoln Academy in Pleasant Grove, Utah, grew the dreads for religious reasons after studying abroad in Guatemala, the report says.

Per Fox 13:

Judd believes if students of other ethnicities are allowed to wear them, her daughter should be able to wear them as well.

“My daughter is white and there happens to be other kids in the school who happen to be other race and ethnicity and they have hair that can’t be combed, and there’s never been an issue regarding that before,” Judd said.

While Lincoln Academy’s dress code does not specifically ban dreadlocks, there are policies against unnatural hair colors and distracting haircuts that Principal Jake Hunt says they hold every student at the school to.

Judd accused the school of “racially profiling” her daughter because she is a White girl with dreads. Do you agree? Sound off…
