From The Columbus Dispatch: A Milford, Ohio, woman has filed a lawsuit accusing a sixth-grade teacher and a teacher's aide of humiliating her son for his long hair by tying it into ponytails, making him stand in front of classrooms and encouraging students to mock him. The lawsuit brought by Amanda Anoai alleges that on Sept. 29, her 11-year-old son was asked by his language arts teacher at Boyd E. Smith Elementary School in Milford to deliver a message to another room. The teacher told the class that she was going to play a prank, and when he returned, the teacher's aide approached J.A. with a pair of hair clippers and pretended to shave his hair, the lawsuit states. The teacher pulled the boy's hair into three ponytails and introduced him to the class as a new student with a female name, the lawsuit alleges. The teacher's aide walked him to other sixth-grade classrooms to show his ponytails, and classmates laughed and called him names including "girl," "ponytails" and "pigtails."
