Langston University and DBCS Agree to Rescind Policy
The following statement is from Langston University:
"Langston University became aware Friday of a matter in which a student was allegedly dismissed from the Deborah Brown Community School, a charter school in Tulsa, Oklahoma sponsored by the University. The alleged dismissal stemmed from a violation of a school policy related to dress code and appearance. Langston University was not involved with creating the policy. After a discussion between Langston University President Kent Smith and the superintendent of the school, Ms. Deborah Brown, it was mutually agreed that the policy in question should be changed. On Monday Ms. Brown will propose a policy change to the school’s board during a special meeting. Smith said he supports the change in the policy because it reflects an important value at Langston University to respect the individuality of students."
