Just In: Court Orders Achimota School to Admit Rastafarian Students

The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court has ordered Achimota School to admit the two Rastafarian students who were asked to get rid of their dreadlocks to be accepted into the school.

More than two months ago, Achimota School refused to admit two students with dreadlocks -Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea – due to their refusal to cut their dreadlocks.

The two students were posted to Achimota School by the Computerised School Selection Placement System (CSSPS) but the school authorities claimed it is against the rules of the school to admit students with dreadlocks.
