Teen trying for world's tallest mohawk miffed school sent him home9/28/2012
Who would think a 16-inch Statue of Liberty-styled mohawk would be a distraction? Obviously not 'hawk-wearer Ashton Stonesifer, who's upset that his high school principal sent him home because of it. The 17-year-old Floridian had been asked not to spike his hair the day before, but because he's 17, he just haaaad to do it again, and now he and his mother are both miffed that the school actually enforced its rules. "[The hairstyle] is important to my son," proud mom Rae says of Ashton's goal to eventually set a record for the world's tallest mohawk. "I'm … socially unacceptable, so why can't my hair express that, too?" Ashton pleads. Looks like you’ve got your yearbook quote, dude. [Source]
Who's right, the school or Ashton?
