“TATUM, Tyler (KETK)- Tatum ISD parents are outraged, claiming the school board changed the dress code discriminating against African American boys.
During a Monday night Tatum ISD board meeting, concerned parents and members of the community, packed into the building holding signs.
“I will be here at every board meeting. I will fight to get all the rules changed,” said Randi Woodley talking directly to the school board.
Woodley says she went in front of the board to advocate for her grandson, a child she has had custody of since he was 4 months old.
Back in August of 2018, Woodley claims her grandson attended a Meet the Teacher meeting when she was notified there was a problem with his hair.
“I was told that I needed to see the principal. so I went to the principal’s office where she explained to me that my grandson’s hair was too long,” explained Woodley.”
