LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDTN) – Kentucky State Representative elect Attica Scott is raising questions about a school policy on hair in Louisville.
Bulter Traditional High School in Louisville has a hair policy that states that students cannot have their hair in cornrows, braids, twists, and dreadlocks, NBC affiliate WKYC reports.
Scott posted the schools’ policy about hair on Twitter Wednesday night and it quickly touched a nerve with many people online nationally and even drew questions from the director of the Louisville Urban league.
JCPS has now responded tonight saying this is not a district policy but one decided by the site based decision making council at Butler.
According to WKYC, Scott said online she will be contacting the district administrators on Thursday.
