Achimota School Declines GES Directive to admit Rastafarian Student

Achimota School has rejected a directive by the Ghana Education Service to admit two Rastafarian students.

Headmistress of the school after a crunch meeting on Monday with the regional director of education and the GES stated that the school will not compromise on its school rules and will only admit the students if they take off their dreadlocks.

Last weekend, story of Achimota School directing a Rastafarian student to cut his Rasta or lose admission took over social media.

GES in a response directed the school to admit the student, however the school management in a meeting today refused the directive saying they will not bend the rules for anyone.
