Principals have been reaching out to the parents of a schoolgirl in Jamaica, who is at the centre of a two-year dispute over a culture clash over school rules and rights to a hairstyle.
The parents of the seven-year-old Kensington Primary student say they are uncertain whether their daughter will have a place at the school in the new academic year.
Last Friday, the family was left disappointed after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the school in a lawsuit that rested on a challenge to administrators’ right to bar the dreadlocked girl from attending school.
Meanwhile Reggae singer Buju Banton took to his Instagram page to speak up against the dispute saying it is Rasta discrimination and that no one should be discriminated against because of their hairstyle.
He said everyone should be able to wear their hair based on their religion and beliefs.
