Hairstyle not important, TT

THE EDITOR: TT, we must not breach the basic rights of our students.

Does a student's hairstyle affect learning? Does wearing one's hair naturally have a negative impact on their ability to learn?

Hairstyles can range from neat and tidy to no afro, no plaits, no ribbons.

I humbly suggest the Education Minister decides on a universal policy, implementing same in all schools .

The rules should best benefit all the students. We must not breach the basic rights of students.

We have had a Rasta, be he real, imaginary or cosmetic, in Parliament many years now with little or no effects, consequences, repercussions. There is still no Kwame Ture street, only talk, promises.

My grandmother is a Francis. I have thick aristocratic white hair.

What is important is not the hair on a student's head, but the brain inside.
