Admit Rasta students – High Court orders Achimota Sch

General News
The boys were denied admission because of their hair

The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court has ruled in favour of the dreadlocked boys who gained admission to the Achimota School, Tyrone Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea.

The boys were denied admission in March because of their hair, even though they were placed by the Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) passing their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).  

Subsequently, they filed a lawsuit against the school to seek justice.

Final judgment was passed on the case today, Monday, 31 May 2021.

The High Court ordered Achimota School to admit the Rastafarian students for further studies with their dreadlocks unaffected.
