Five-year-old Navajo boy sent home from school for his long hair
A five-year-old boy who is a member of the Navajo Nation was sent home from kindergarten for having long hair. April Wilson said her son, Malachi, was excited for the first day of school on Monday at F.J. Young Elementary in Texas. But he was disappointed when he was told the length of his hair violated school policy.
