Former Ghana Education Service (GES) official, Mr Charles Aheto-Tsegah has said the Motown Headmistress stands the chance of been removed from her post for rejecting a directive from the Education Service.
His comment comes after the Headmistress of the Accra-based Achimota School after denying two dreadlocked students admission, on March 19, 2021, rejected a directive for the first-year students to be admitted.
According to the Motown Headmistress, the Rastafarians were refused admission base on the school’s rules and regulations and the GES code of conduct which states no individual with dread should be admitted a student
But, the former Director-General of GES, Mr Charles Aheto-Tsegah in an interview with 3FM monitored by Educationweb.com.gh condemned the Achimota Management of the school for rejecting the order from the GES.
“If the Director-General issues a directive, how would you say that you will not obey? So the Headmistress or the Head of the school is not interested in continuing in that position as head of that school,” Mr Aheto-Tsegah stated.
“Because if I give you instructions and you say you will not do it, it leaves me no option but to say thank you I don’t think you are the right person I put in this school,” the former GES official said as quoted by 3News.
The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) after it in a meeting Monday instructed the Achimota School not to admit the dreadlocked students is yet to communicate its final decision to members of the public.
