By Zoila Palma González: Ladyville resident Kevin Pollard says his son was denied enrollment at 2 elementary schools in Ladyville because of his dead ends.
Pollard added that the Ladyville Evangelical School said one of the requirements was that boys not be allowed to have long hair.
He further stated that he then went to the SDA Primary in Ladyville and was told the same thing.
“I would like this discrimination to stop because she is being victimized. You tell me that because you have dreadlocks you can’t go to school. I think the classification of people with dreadlocks should end,” Pollard said during an interview with Love FM.
Pollard says her son’s hair is well cared for.
“My son’s hair is well groomed, what does his hair have to do with his learning? yet, we have people in our country who are in high positions and are very professional such as lawyers, CEOs of GOBs, doctors, business owners, teachers, former minister and many more. As a society, as a country, how can we allow this, are you telling me that we cannot be Rastafarians in Belize? “, he said on a Facebook post.
