(Fox8) VIRGINIA- A family from Timberlake, Virginia is speaking out after they said their child was discriminated against because of the way she looks.
8-year-old Sunnie Kahle has short hair.
Doris and Carroll Thompson, Sunnie’s grandparents told WSET News, she is a completely normal little girl.
According to WSET News, Doris and Carroll Thompson, who adopted and raise Sunnie, have removed her from Timberlake Christian School after receiving a letter from the K-8 principal.
The letter stated, “You’re probably aware that Timberlake Christian School is a religious, bible believing institution providing education in a distinctly Christian environment.”
Sunnie’s grandparents said the letter went on to say that students are confused about whether Sunnie is a boy or a girl. The letter also stated administrators can refuse enrollment for condoning sexual immorality, practicing a homosexual lifestyle or alternative gender identity and referenced bible verses that back up those beliefs.
An administrator from Timberlake Christian told WSET News, the problem goes far beyond Sunnie’s hair length and that “things disturbed the classroom environment.”
