[Full Details]: Achimota School (Motown) rejects GES Directive to Admit Rastafarians

One of Ghana’s best Co-educational senior high school, Achimota School (Motown) in reports gathered by unitedshowbiz.com.gh has rejected the GES directive to allow for students with dreadlocks to be accepted for admission.

After a crucial meeting on Monday, March 22, 2021, with the regional director of education and the GES, the Headmistress of the school emphasized that either the parents compromise on their religious beliefs and allow their children to take off the deadlocks or students will be denied admission to the school.

The directive followed an intense and sustained online protest against the decision of the Achimota school authorities.

National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) fiercely resisted a directive from the Ghana Education Service. NAGRAT President Eric Angel Carbonu said the exemptions will lead to a chaotic school environment in the country.

He has asked the GES to redirect the management of the school to ensure students abide by rules. The school is an environment for training and conformity is part of the training, he said.

  1. For me, I’m actually in the same bus with headmistress. I support her action and love her firmness. Either the parents compromise or no admission for their son, period!!!!!
    Nobody should should disturb our eardrums with anything like human rights. What good is this human right doing to us in this country?
