$60 hair cut for a BOY dry.gif dry.gif i eat until so old never had a hair cut so expensive wow!

Mum files police report after teacher cuts boy's hair just before exam
Edvantage | Thu Aug 23 2012

SINGAPORE - One hour before his PSLE oral exam last Thursday, a 12-year-old pupil was hauled into an empty classroom to have his hair cut by his teacher.

The pupil from Unity Primary School in Choa Chu Kang said the teacher, Ms Belinda Cheng, had told him that his hair was too long and if she didn't cut his hair, marks will be deducted from his exam.

Faced with little choice, the pupil agreed, but told The New Paper that he felt "sad and depressed" afterwards. He said two other pupils also had to have their hair cut.

Enraged by the actions of the teacher, his mother, Madam Serene Ong lodged a police report and complained to the Ministry of Education (MOE).

Madam Ong, 39, a sales manager, told The Straits Times: "The teacher had no right to cut his hair...She showed me no respect by not telling me that she was going to cut his hair beforehand," adding that the snip had ruined the boy's $60 haircut.

Madam Ong also worried that the incident may have affected his performance on the exam.

The school's principal, Mrs Jasmail Singh Gill, agreed with Madam Ong that the teacher should not have cut the boy's hair. But, she said the pupil had been given a warning letter and that Ms Cheng had the right intentions.

Madam Ong was unaware that a warning letter had been given as her son had forgotten to show it to her, The New Paper reported.

The notice was dated Aug 14, two days before the exam.

Madam Ong scolded her son for not producing the slip earlier, but added that her son was dyslexic, and they "tend to be forgetful".

However, a teacher and principal whom The New Paper spoke to felt that the timing of the letter was too near to the exam, and the situation should have been dealt with at least a day earlier.

"Ultimately, principals should exercise discretion and have the welfare of the child at heart," said the principal, who declined to be named.

A spokesperson for MOE said schools are provided with a set of guidelines to manage school discipline, but "within the guidelines, schools may formulate their own rules based on the school context and needs".

Number 1, the teacher shouldn't done that; its not the 70s anymore; methods like these won't work

Number 2, the parent (mother) is an arrogant BiXch, who has no regards for our imperfect system; education and law enforcement. Making a mountian out of a mole hill. Shame on you!!!

Either sent the child to special school, or obey the rules. I bet the policeman are laughing off when this happen. There is nothing parents can do as long as the school did not physically hurt the child.

Problem with some parent so protective over their kids. School is a place for children to learn not to show off. Is only pri 6 and need a designer haircut. I think he should go to an international school and compete with the rich and famous.

Actually, the teacher should not have cut the boy's hair on PSLE exam day itself. If they wanted to do it, should have done it long before. Or after that particular oral exam, also better.

Now it seems the school principal don't want to back up the teacher. So the teacher acted on own initiative? Kind of hard to believe. I do know that some schools bar students from sitting for exams if they don't comply with rules on the day itself. Example, a student cannot turn up for exams without being in uniform. And these rules probably extend to hairstyles, wearing proper shoes, as well.

If I were the teacher, honestly, I wouldn't have cared. This particular boy will already be on his way out in a couple of weeks, so who cares?

Maybe this teacher cared for students too much, and that caused her downfall. Kind of ironic, when they stress "caring" in teacher training, no??
