‘Dreadlocks not the issue’

nationnews.com: "Principal of Hill Top Preparatory School, Alicia Forde, is making it clear that there is no discrimination against Rastafarianism at the school, but maintains that she has rules which must be followed.

Speaking with the DAILY NATION yesterday, Forde said that while girls were attending the school with dreadlocks, she had always pointed out to parents of boys during their formal interviews that boys’ hair was to be worn low, with “no fancy haircuts”."
