Maylin Wattley is upset that her son Malachi will have to cut his hair, if he chooses to stay at Central Catholic.

Malachi is a freshman. Maylin says Malachi has been growing his dreadlocks since he was two years old.

His family originates from the Virgin Islands where the length of his dreadlocks is a spiritual symbol of strength.

She says Malachi was given a detention last week for his dreadlocks and was told to cut them.
