The Achimota School PTA following the School’s decision to reject and deny the two first-year students with dreadlocks hairstyle admission has commended the Motown Headmistress saying “it strongly stand with her”.
According to the Motown PTA, compromising the Achimota School rules and admitting the two dreadlocked students on religious grounds would open the floodgates for all types of hairstyle and breed indiscipline.
The PTA quoting the School’s revised rules and regulations Section H (General Appearance) item 3 stated “students must keep their hair low, simple and natural as the hair should not go through any chemical process”.
It in a statement copied to Educationweb.com.gh said “Achimota School PTA executives unreservedly and unequivocally supports the school’s decision to enforce its rules with respect to the admission of two rasta students.”
“Furthermore, we believe Article 14(1)(e) of the 1992 constitution of Ghana which states: for the purpose of education or welfare of a person who has not attained the age of 18 years gives the school the right to set such rules in furtherance of education,” the PTA added in the letter to the Headmistress.
“The Achimota School PTA stand with the Headmistress and welcome into our fold parents who are ready to abide by the rules and regulations of the Achimota School” the PTA chairman, Dr Andre Kwasi-Kumah stated.
