School officials in Edenton say one 5th grader's hairdo is too much for her fellow students to handle.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reports that 10-year-old Jakyra Kearse was taken out of class Wednesday after coming to school sporting a mohawk haircut with dyed red and blue braids.

Officials say Kearse was put in a smaller classroom because her hair was too distracting.

Her mother, Ruby, is a former hairdresser who gave her daughter the look. She says her daughter has worn dyed hair before without any problems.

Edenton-Chowan Schools Superintendent Allan Smith says the school and the Kearses are working on a way to get Jakyra back into her regular class.
