PLAINVIEW, Texas (AP) - A West Texas mother wants an apology after she says an educator used a dark marker to color in her son’s hairline in a dress code dispute.

The woman says her son, who attends Coronado Middle School in Plainview, has had the same hairstyle for five months and nobody complained. The cut features a shaved line on the side of his head.

She told KCBD-TV on Thursday that the school failed to notify her about the recent actions by an assistant principal. The mother says administrators later told her the haircut was a distraction.

School district spokesman Greg Brown told the Plainview Daily Herald that the dress code prohibits designs shaved into the scalp, including lines. Brown declined comment on the incident or a possible review of the educator’s actions.
