Following a complain of how a child was humiliated in class, the pre-school teacher from Zoo-phonics School’s Serangoon Central branch has been suspended.
In a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Mr Eric Cheong wrote of how the teacher, known only as Ms Theresa had singled out his son for sporting long hair. She thenproceeded to clip his hair with a “girl’s hair clip”. As a result of Ms Theresa’s action, the entire class laughed. According to Mr Cheong, his son was thoroughly humiliated by the incident.
In the same post, the parents claimed that other parents had issues with the inappropriate punishments meted out by Ms Theresa.
The school indicated that they will be facilitating a meeting for the teacher and the family.
