When 5-year-old Ethan Clos showed up at school with a short, spiky mohawk last week, his fellow kindergarteners thought it was cool. But administrators at Reid Primary and Middle School in Springfield, Ohio, deemed the edgy cut too disruptive, and ordered him home until he adopted a tamer style.

His mom, Keshia Castle, said that school officials suspended her son on Wednesday. After he begged her for the hairstyle, she finally let him get it over spring break.

"They seen his hair like it was," she told WHIO-TV on Friday. "All the little kids were going over and feeling on it and everything."

Superintendent Gregg Morris says that's exactly why they had to send little Ethan home.

"Our dress and grooming policies are designed to ensure that clothing and hairstyles do not cause a distraction to the learning environment," Morris said in a statement.

The school's handbook states that "Hair shall be worn above the eyebrows and must be kept clean, neat and trimmed" and specifies that boys may not wear their hair longer than the bottom of their shirt collars. It also says: "Hair styling or coloring arrangements which are disruptive or distracting are not permissible."

When I was in school, I didn't pay much attention to the way any particular student looked -- I don't know why kids would now.

I dont think it should be punishable by school rules but i do think it reflects poorly on the parents. Talk about low class

Plus its called control of the classroom. Tell the kids to sit down and pay attention or they go to the office, simple as that.

Low class? You have no idea whether this kids parents are rich or poor OR how a hair style determines whether they are white trash or posh... Come on now..

You say low class I say some one that wants to have fun and not live a boring life.

Stupid school policy.

At the school I went to we had kids that not only had bigger mohawks but they were dyed, too. The horror.

I think admins of schools and school systems need to be suspended for their lack of common sense and lackluster standards

and i think you are a complete idiot for being part of the service...(do you see how ignorant that sounds)

i see its mostly the old farts in here who dont like the kids haircut, times have changed people... because you have a weird haircut, tattoos, piercings doesn't mean you are low class, a terrible person, or worthless.

Go tell the schools that. They make the rules and you will abide by them whether you like it or not. It doesn't matter whether I like the haircut or not. I could have told them the schools would not, so that makes them idiots for letting him do it.

And BTW, I do like his haircut.
