GES Directs Achimota School To Admit Rastafarians

The Ghana Education Service(GES) has directed authorities of Achimota School to admit two first-year students who were rejected for wearing dreadlocks.

According to GES, the Headmaster of Achimota School has been directed to reverse his earlier decision to deny two students with dreadlocks admission on the grounds that it flouts the GES code of conduct.

The directive says that “the student is Rastafarian and if there is evidence to show that he is a Rastafarian, all that he needs to do is to tie the hair neatly”.
