A mother in Ohio is outraged after being told her son can't return to school unless he gets rid of his mohawk.
The 5-year-old was sent home from kindergarten last week over the hair style and has not been back since.
She said keeping him out of class is too severe a punishment.
"I'm going to have to take him to go get it shaved because obviously he has to go to school," Keshia Castle said. "I'm already going to a mediation because he's missed a few days of school."
The school district told her that his hair caused a disturbance in class because teachers couldn't keep the attention of the other students.
