The National Executive Director of the GNACOPS, Mr Enoch Kwasi Gyetuah says the Achimota School lost the court case involving the Rastafarian students amid lack of proper educational governance structures in Ghana Education Service (GES)
Reacting to the ruling of the court case in a social media post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh, Mr Gyetuah said the educational system needs a serious overhauling in respect to leadership and governance structures to ensure that the proper school administration is guaranteed.
“Let us as a nation, continue to expunge the rotten paths in our educational systems us we align ourselves to the international best practices in education rather than using the old self acclaimed portfolios that has lost its efficacy in the 21st century learning space,” the Educationist stated in the post.
The GNACOPS official added that “The core mandate of every educational institution is to change a behaviour to suit the socially accepted noms , with rightful structures in place every school would not be perturbed by the difficulties each day present.”
According to him, parents would soon sue the Ghana Education Service (GES) to seek for compensations for the non fulfilment of their core mandate as an educational provider.
Meanwhile, the governing board of the Achimota School has said it will appeal against the High Court order to admit the two rasta students it rejected because of their long hair on March 19, 2021
