The President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Angel Cabornu, has stated that NAGRAT is indifferent about the court’s order to Achimota School.
In a report file by Citinewsroom, Carbonu said his outfit cannot be bothered about the repercussions of the court’s ruling, given that NAGRAT’s quest to reform students’ character through the enforcement of specific codes of conduct in various schools had been truncated by the court.
According to him, the court’s order only means that students in various schools are at liberty to do what they like.
“What the judgement means is that the Rasta students and all other students can dress anyway and go to school, and we teachers do not have to waste our time and energy talking about character formation. We thank the court for making our work easy,” he said.
Carbonu before the ruling of the court joined other groups and individuals in opposing the idea of admitting the two Rastafarian boys.
In an interview he granted, he stated that if the Rastafarian students did not want to cut their hair, then they should set up their own school to accommodate them.
YEN.com.gh reported that the Achimota School has been ordered to admit Tyrone Marhguy, the dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian boy into the school.
The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra directed Achimota School to also admit Oheneba Nkrabea, another Rastafarian student into the school.
The ruling was read by High Court Judge, Gifty Adjei Addo.
Her reasons were that failure to admit the applicant because of their dreadlocks, which is a manifestation of their religious right is a violation of their human right, right to education, and dignity.
