In March of 2021, a major controversy erupted when headlines broke in Ghana that two students with locs applied to Achimota School and were denied entry on the basis of their hair. Ghana Education Service, after initially directing the school to accept the students, suddenly backtracked on this decision also denying them admission until they conformed by cutting their hair.
