Achimota Rasta Student Emerges Best Student In Science And Mathematics Class Examination.
According to reports received by elohaionline.com, one of the two Rastafari students, Tyrone Marghuy, who had difficulties in gaining admission to the elitist Achimota Middle School due to his long hair braids has topped his class in the science and mathematics examination.
Despite the fact that he was absent from class for several weeks due to a fierce legal dispute with the school, he has emerged the best science and mathematics student in his class.
However, Elohai News received reports that the principal of the school, Joyce Rodalin Addo, withheld Tyrone’s transcript and refused to hand it over for unknown reasons.
“We were waiting for the rest of the results. So I asked him this morning if the rest of the results are in, but he said no because they said the headmistress or somebody said the rest of the results shouldn’t be given to them anymore,” father of Tyrone revealed in a public statement, alerting that the headmistress could tamper with the results.
“I hope they don’t manipulate the rest of the results.” I suspect they want to keep it because they don’t want it to be made public, because it will be a shame for the school, because if the boy did not study with the whole class, he would still be defeated in the exam. — the elder Maguy said.
Tyrone and another Rastafarian student, Oheneba Nkrabea, competed and won in the High Court with schools and Ghana Education Service. They tried to prevent them from enrolling because they had dreadlocks for religious reasons.
Nkrabea eventually won a scholarship of US$160,000 to enter a prestigious international school in Accra, the International School of Ghana (GIS). But according to reports, Tyrone rejected a similar scholarship and chose to study in Achimota.
Earlier, talented Tyrone’s reputation earned him a place in the Archimotta Science and Mathematics Debating Team.
However, while he has achieved such academic achievements, the Attorney General (AG), Godfred Yeboah Dame and Achimota School have filed a joint appeal to the Court of Appeal against the decision of the Accra High Court, which forced Achimota to recognize two Rastafas. Li teaches students, and it earlier refused to admit their dreadlocks.
According to the appellant, Judge Gifty Agyei Addo ruled that the school’s enforcement of the dress and courtesy regulations violated the basic human rights of the two students to receive education, which was legally wrong.
“The knowledgeable judge mistakenly believed that the first defendant’s regulations required students to keep their hair low, which constituted an illegal and unconstitutional attempt to suspend the applicant’s guaranteed practice and freedom of expression of his religion,” the submitted documents Statement from Achimota and AG.
In March 2021, Tyrone Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea dragged the Achimota School Board, the Minister of Education, the Ministry of Education of Ghana, and the Minister of Justice to the court on the grounds that the school refused to admit them because of their braided hairstyles.
Achimota School had explained that the hairstyle was against the school’s regulation and that they would only be admitted if they agreed to shave their hair.
Achimota’s double standards are fully exposed in this matter, because the school allows some foreign students to wear long hair, and some foreigners even discovered dreadlocks.
Faced with this problem earlier, Angel Carbonu, president of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), defended the difference and said that if European children were asked to cut their hair, they would look ugly.
On May 31, 2021, the Accra High Court Human Rights Tribunal, chaired by Judge Gifty Agyei Addo, made a judgment that the basic human rights of the two students cannot be restricted by relevant rules.
According to the judge, Achimota School and its supporters, including GES and the Ministry of Justice, failed to make a convincing argument as to why the two students should not be admitted, especially considering their right to education and the right to express their opinions. Freedom of religion.
