    Boys Denied School Enrollment Because Of Long Hair
    Associated Press

    Two East Texas boys whose religious beliefs forbid hair-cutting until
    age 13 have been barred from attending a public school because their
    hair is too long. Parents David and Korey Tuttle of Spring Hill said
    their religion, called Stregheria, is a form of Italian witchcraft which
    prevents hair-cutting until the boys reach 13.
