Ghanaian legal luminary and law lecturer at the University of Florida, Professor Kwaku Stephen Asare popularly known as Kwaku Azar, has charged citizens to fear the Ghana Education Service ( GES) following their stance on the brouhaha between the Achimota SHS and Rastafarian students.
This comes after GES’s a u- turn after they had earlier directed Authorities of the school to admit Rastafarian students they earlier denied them admissions.
Headmistress of the school had earlier denied the students admissions on grounds of they having dreadlocks.
However, the law lecturer reacting to the Service’s u- turn, described it as tantalizing, saying it makes the matter intriguing and perplexing.
He questioned what the initial directive of GES was based on and why the reversal.
According to Mr Azar, educating the youth does not require that their religious rights are being disturbed.
He holds the view that quiet the contrary, the insistence that Rastafarians abandon their dreads as a condition precedent to their being educated is in itself a miseducation.
” Fear GES!
The GES’s sudden u- turn is what makes this polity intriguing and perplexing.
Was the initial directive based on something? If yes, why the reversal, if no, why the initial directive?
Who called whom?
GOGO will not countenance such tantalizing u turns.
Educating the youth does not require that we disturb their religious right. Quiet the contrary, insistence that Rastafarians abandon their dreads as a condition precedent to their being educated is in itself a miseducation” Prof Azar wrote on Facebook.
