The female student of Naoki Kan High School says she has gone through mental anguish and physical damage to her hair being forced to dye her naturally brown hair black and is suing the school for 2.2 million yen.

It is reported she was prevented on going on school trips and has not attended school in about a year. This actually started for her in middle school and has extended in to high school.

In September last year, the students said from the teacher, “If you do not dye the black you do not have to come to school,” and after that it has not attended school. In high school this April, the student’s name was deleted from the school registrar.

Apparently, the school instructs students that don’t have black hair to dye it every 1-2 weeks. The school’s lawyer said, “Even blonde international students have to dye their hair black to comply.”
