A father of one of the 2020 BECE graduates denied admission by the Achimota School on Friday has suggested for the Ghana Education Service to review its code of conduct for all public schools to accept dread students.
Mr Raswad Nkrabea suggestion comes after the Achimota School Headmistress in line with the GES code of conduct refused his son, Tyrone Marhguy and another dread student admission because of their long hair.
However, the Ghana Education Service after receiving complaints from stakeholders and the public in a statement copied to Educationweb.com.gh directed for the Achimota Management to admit the two rasta students.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, the popular Rastafarian, Raswad Nkrabea said he is yet to receive a response from Motown or GES concerning the letter issued late Friday to admit the two dread students.
“We haven’t gotten an official response from the school or from the GES, so it is very important that we stay very resolute and alert in terms of what is happening,” Tyrone Marhguy’s father told Citi News.
According to him, the Ghana Education Service (GES) directive for the Motown Management to admit the two Rastafarian students should be extended to all public Senior High Schools (SHS) in the country.
“We do not want the situation where it will just apply to just one school like the Achimota School then you find this thing happening in Kumasi next year or somewhere else” Raswad Nkrabea stated in the interview.
