Ohio kindergartner's hair raises trouble at school

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — A kindergartner's new mohawk haircut landed him in hot water at his school in Ohio.

The 5-year-old boy was sent home this past week because school officials near Springfield say his haircut was causing a big distraction in class.

Clark Shawnee School District officials told Castle that her son's hair caused such a disturbance that his teacher couldn't get the attention of the students.

Superintendent Gregg Morris tells WHIO-TV in Dayton that the hairstyle violates district rules.

The boy's mom says he'll return to class Monday with a shaved head.+
