Hayden v. Greensburg Community School Corporation (USA)

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled that Greensburg Community Schools in Indiana engaged in sex discrimination when it required a male student to cut his hair or lose his spot on the school basketball team. Parents Patrick and Melissa Hayden had challenged the hair cut requirement’s constitutionality after their son, identified in court documents as A.H., was cut from the team in 2010 after he declined to cut his hair. The court found that the school’s “policy constitutes sex discrimination.”
