Jesus Christ never taught in private!
Christian school in central Florida
Baby Jesus could never go to this school!
Jesus Christ could never be allowed to teach at this school!
you know this story, so here goes anyway.
this school has been opened to schooling since 1971 without incidence?
it is or should be in their bylaws about hair.
Back in the 1970’s people were protesting the Vietnam - Skirmish
(not yet a war a Skirmish).
White boys grew their hair!
I wasted 6 years of my life
in the military
while helping to
protect your right to punish children!

Growing calls for change
A little boy with dreadlocks enrolled at a fundamentalist Christian school.
It didn’t go well
The wrath of the Internet came down on a tiny private Christian school in central Florida this week, over video of a 6-year-old being turned away on the first day of school because he has dreadlocks.
It’s one of those stories where surprisingly few facts are in dispute between C.J. Stanley’s family and the school, and somehow it still ends in calls to the police, accusations of racism and death threats.
Don’t worry — C.J. is fine, albeit perplexed as to how his hair style became fuel in a national outrage. Anyway, here’s the story of how his first week of school went all wrong.
A Book Christian Academy has been educating children in the Orlando suburbs since 1971, the school’s administrator Sue Book told The Washington Post.
And at no point in those 47 years has any boy been allowed to have long hair in class.
A Book’s Christian Academy sent 6-year-old C.J. Stanley home on the first day of school Aug. 13 because his hair was longer than the permitted length. (Clinton Stanley Sr.)
