President of the Jamaica Teachers’ Association, JTA, Leighton Johnson, says school administrators and students across the island are complying with the new dress and grooming policy.

A draft of the policy was introduced in schools ahead of the start of the new school year on September 4.

It aims to put an end to the practice of school administrators barring those students who break the rules from accessing the school grounds.

Among the major provisions under the draft policy is the decision to allow male students to wear their dreadlocks uncovered.

Mr. Johnson says there’s been little of no resistance to the new rules.
