The Ghana Education Service (GES) after directing the Achimota School to admit two rasta boys it denied admission has reportedly encouraged the Motown Management not to compromise the GES code of conduct.
Ras George Tetteh Wayo, a lawyer for the students the Accra-based Achimota School denied admission last week Friday disclosed this speaking on Citi FM’s Eye Witness News monitored by Educationweb.com.gh.
According to him, a representative for the Ghana Education Service (GES) at the meeting said the earlier statement from his outfit for the school to admit the two rasta boys (students) was to calm the general public.
The lawyer said it was after the comment of the Ghana Education Service official that the Headmistress of the Motown stated the Achimota School will not admit the Rastafarian students till they take off the dreadlocks.
“So the Achimota Headmistress put her position across that she stands by the school policy that the rasta boys can only come in if they have taken off their dreadlocks,” Ras George Tetteh told the host of Eye Witness News.
The current decision of the Achimota School Management according to George was supported by the staff of the Ghana Education Service adding that they were given an option to pursue legal action against the school.
“The Headmistress of the Achimota School even said when we go to court and loss the case, we will pay damages to the school,” the lawyer told Citi FM’s Umaru Sanda Amadu as stated by his client, Ras Nkrabeah.
