The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Achimota Senior High School has released a press statement to support the decision of the school authorities in respect of the rejection of three students who wear dreadlocks.
In the press statement, the PTA of Achimota S.H.S indicated that Section H of item 3 of the school laws prohibit the wearing of unacceptable hairdo (including dreadlocks) in the school. This is because it serves as an agent that can catalyst indiscipline in the school.
However, the controversial freelance journalist, Kevin Taylor, has reprimanded the PTA for supporting “selective justice” of Achimota School authorities.
According to him, Ghanaians have pampered and supported antiquated laws for so many long.
Hence, Ghana has to embrace the new form of education system that the contemporary world demands.
Kevin Taylor wrote
“We have entertained ignorance for too long, from what I am reading from this bogus and useless PTA of ‘ACHIFOREST’ the Rastafarian kid qualifies to be in that ‘ACHIFOREST SCHOOL' Achimota the new useless”
