Raswad Menkrabea, a father of a teenager with dreadlocks has revealed on social media that his son has been denied admittance into Achimota School because he refused to cut off his Natural hair.

He revealed this in a facebook page that his son and another child were denied admission into the Secondary school by authorities of the school

He wrote:

Fellow Comrades and Friends,This morning, the school authorities of Achimota School claimed that their rules do not allow students with dreadlocks to be admitted. The school authorities denied two brilliant dreadlock students from being admitted after having been posted there by the Computer School Placement System. My son was one of the affected children and the other student was also refused on the same grounds. We have no option but to battle against this gross human right violation. As a child he has every right to his culture in so far as such culture do not breach the 1992 Constitution. He equally deserves the right to access education within his culture just like other cultural believers. As a Rastafarian, I think that dreadlocks do no way cause any harm which should even be a basis to be asserted by the school authorities. The fundamental questions to ask is what does our law say about right to one’s culture? Do you deny a child access to education based on his/her culture? Do public school rules override the supreme law of the land? Tomorrow I will be on TV3 to share some light. Will give update on time.Thank you for the Solidarity. Ras Aswad Nkrabeah
