  • Native American student can keep long hair

    Somerset, Texas (AP)

    A Native American Somerset High School senior – whose parents filed a federal lawsuit saying his right of religious expression was violated when he received an on-campus suspension – can return to class without having to cut his shoulder-length hair.

    Jesus Figueroa’s long hair had been an issue since last school year, landing him in on-campus suspension a few times. After a battle that included the federal lawsuit, the Somerset Independent School District’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously Monday night to grant the 17-year-old special dispensation from the district’s grooming policy. The policy bans males’ hair from touching the collar.
