Dreadlocks and the right to religion in school

I'm just flabbergasted that this is even happening to this young man. A young man who is Rastafarian is being told he is suspended until he cuts his locs, which they claim as a violation to the school dress code.

Obviously I think the school is dead wrong here, but I'd like to hear your thoughts. I believe it is wrong because it would go against his religious beliefs to cut his hair.
