 NBC - A judge ruled that a Texas high school was not violating the CROWN Act by punishing a Black teen over the length of his dreadlocks. Darryl George, a junior at the school outside of Houston, has been in in-school suspension or at an off-site disciplinary program for most of the school year, when school officials said George’s hair violates a district dress code regulating the length of boys’ hair.  State District Judge Chap Cain III said the Barbers Hill Independent School District’s dress and grooming policies do not violate the CROWN Act, which prohibits race-based hair discrimination at work, school and in housing facilities in the state.... The family’s lawyer said they plan to appeal the decision.
