A father has sued the education ministry and a high school seeking to compel them to admit his daughter to form one without shaving her dreadlocks.
The man, says his daughter keeps dreadlocks as part of religious practice and not as a fashion statement and therefore should not be compelled to shave.
The minor was home from on January 10 despite having paid school fees.
She was allegedly orally condemned and directed that she only comes back after shaving.
The father in suit papers says the action of the school amounts to discrimination meted on his daughter on the basis of her Rastafarian faith.
