Some schools’ codes of conduct have been viewed as highly discriminatory against specific racial groups.
In 2017 a special needs student was held in solitary confinement because she refused to allow teachers to cut her hair. The principal was not impressed with the new haircut, so she demanded that it be changed. When she refused, she was put in a small room meant for disciplining. The school admitted to locking the girl in there for six to seven days, then subsequently taken home.
