Ghana Is Not Like Jamaica That Tolerates Warp Ideology - Ghanaians React Massively To Rasta Student

The fundamental right of each Ghanaian is enshrined in the constitution. Every Ghanaian has the right to education and can choose whichever school he or she wants to join. The misunderstanding for some time now has been the Right of an individual verus the rules and regulations governing the school.

Whiles some are of the view that the constitution must reign supreme, others have also indicated that the School rule is rather Paramount and any student who gets admitted must abide by its code of ethics.

As reported on Facebook by some online portals, a Rastafarian boy in the company of his father was denied admission to Achimota Secondary school on the basis that students weren't permitted to wear dreadlocks or keep long hairs. Much to the frustration and disappointment of his father, the school rules stood supreme.

Was it that the father wasn't aware of the schools regulations before sending his ward there or it was to challenge the status quo? Whatever be the reason, his ward was refused entry into the school. But frankly speaking it violates the rules within the Secondary cycle. 

So the Administration Board must be allowed to do their work and if the parent deems the rules too harsh, he can be admitted at a different school or being a Rastafarian himself he still can teach his ward at home. Ghanaians on social media have reacted.Below are some of their conversation screenshots.
