Professor Stephen Kwaku Asare, a.k.a Kwaku Azar, a D&D Fellow in Public Law and Justice at CDD-Ghana has said Ghana Education Service is making matters worse for refusing to set the record straight on Achimota Secondary School dreadlocks controversy.
He admonished Ghanaians to fear the Ghana Education Service (GES) due to their changing voices in the Achimota Secondary School dreadlocks controversy.
According to the Accounting Professor, the U-turn of the GES is “intriguing and perplexing”.
Kwaku Azar in a post on his social media timeline questioned the GES’ reversal thus:
“Was the initial directive based on something? If yes, why the reversal? If no, why the initial directive? Who called whom?”
Kwaku Azar noted that educating the youth does not require that “we disturb their religious right”.
“Quite the contrary, the insistence that Rastafarians abandon their dreads as a condition precedent to their being educated is in itself miseducation,” he said.
The GES on Saturday instructed authorities of the Achimota School in Accra to admit the two first-year students it had rejected because they wore dreadlocks.
