The Management of Achimota School formerly Prince of Wales College and School, now nicknamed Motown have reportedly refused two students with ‘heavy’ deadlocks placed into the school by the CSSPS admission.
Mr Kofi Asare, the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch disclosed this in a social media post sighted by Educationweb.com.gh on Friday.
“I woke up to protests against the refusal of Achimota School to admit these two dreadlocked students,” the Director of the EduWatch stated in the post.
According to Achimota School, it is against the Ghana Education Service (GES) code of conduct to admit an individual with dreadlock as a student.
But, Kofi Asare in disagreement with the Achimota Management has said it is unconstitutional for the Ghana Education Service to prevent a child from enrolling in secondary school because of the nature of their Natural hair.
“I think the Ghana Education Service Code of Conduct is unconstitutional in preventing a child from enrolling in secondary school because of the nature of their Natural Hair,” the Director of the Education Think Thank said.
He furthered that the country’s education reforms cannot be complete without being sufficiently inclusive.
