Ukailya Lofton was so excited for picture day, that she begged her mother Lucinda Williams to put Jolly Ranchers in her hair after seeing the hairstyle in a magazine.
The moment turned out to be sheer embarrassment as her schoolteacher took pictures of the little girl’s hairstyle and posted them on Facebook.
Mocking the hair do, she updated her Facebook status with:
“RIGHT!!! This is for picture day” followed with responses like,
“If you’re going to make your child look ridiculous, the least you can do is have them matching”
“Yea this is foolishness” and “I laughed so hard that my contact popped out.”
Lucinda Williams stated that although the teacher apologized for the incident, she has not apologized directly to her daughter and is upset she’s still employed by the CPS (Chicago Public School).
Although we may all have our thoughts about putting Jolly Ranchers in a child’s hair (I’ll reserve mines for this column) I have to admit as a professional, it was poor judgment on the teachers part.
Lucinda is seeking legal assistant and a lawsuit is planned against the CPS.
