Illinois House sends bill that would bar school rules on hairstyles such as braids and dreadlocks to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk

Gus “Jett” Hawkins, 4, asked his mother Ida Nelson to braid his hair in March and went to school excited to show off his new hairstyle. Nelson got a call the next day from Providence St. Mel informing her that the braids were against the school dress code. (E. Jason Wambsgans / Chicago Tribune)
