The issue over the mother who made a police report after her son's teacher cut his hair is in the limelight again.
Education Minister Heng Swee Keat mentioned this incident when he spoke of demanding parents at the annual MOE Work Plan Seminar speech on Wednesday.
The mother, Madam Serene Ong, was upset that she had been used as an example of an unreasonable parent.
She says she never used her son’s dyslexia as an excuse for him not getting his hair cut, and that she is not against school rules.
The New Paper on Sunday also speaks to two sets of parents – those who are supportive of the teacher's actions and those who speak up for Madam Ong.
