Young Boy Refused Admission To Achimota School Because Of His Dreadlocks | Photos

A father of a son with dreadlocks, Ras Aswad Nkrabeah, claims his boy has been refused admission into Achimota School because of his natural hair.

Nkrabeah explained that his son had to keep his hair for cultural reasons, insisting it does not breach the 1992 Consitution.

He writes,

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 doeshool 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 a culture does 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 the 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 an update on time.

Thank you for the Solidarity. Ras Aswad Nkrabeah
