A high school student in Chihuahua got a cover against his school rules, which denied him entry into classes and imposed disciplinary measures for his haircut.
After the father of the minor promoted a lawsuit for discrimination, the judge ruled that the school regulations that impose on male students «the dark natural haircut» is unconstitutional, as it violates the right to education and free Personality development.

«Wearing hair in a certain way does not contribute or affect school learning and coexistence; On the contrary, this imposition limits the right to free development of the personality of minors… Disciplinary measures, such as the one analysed, are discriminatory and inattentive against human dignity, «he explained, according to a statement from the Council of the Federal Judiciary (CJF).

It was also decided that secondary school authorities «incurred exclusionary and discriminatory behaviors by conditioning student access to the educational campus based on their physical appearance.
In addition, the judge determined, nor did they justify why male students should wear a certain type of haircut and the relationship they have in their learning.
In September 2015, executives of the private school IMARC A.C., in Hermosillo, Sonora, suspended Axan, a 4 year old student, for not cutting his hair.
The case reached the National Council to Prevent discrimination (Conapred), who concluded that punishing him for his personal image was a disproportionate imposition.
