17-year-old Jenesis Johnson has faced a reprimand from her school for her natural hair! She’s in the eleventh grade at North Florida Christian in Tallahassee and last week one of her teachers told her:
“She said that my hair needs to be fixed, it was not neat and needs to be put in a style. My hair is fixed,”
She has been wearing her hair like this for the past seven months.
Jenesis, the teacher asked “How long are you rocking that hairstyle?” two days before being called to the assistant principal’s office where she was told:
“your hair is extreme and faddish and out of control. It’s all over the place,”
Her school is a private school and she was told she had broken the rules.
