MOE to take firm stand against unreasonable demands on teachers
Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said a firm stand must be taken against unreasonable demands placed on teachers.
He said this in his speech at the ministry's annual Work Plan Seminar on Wednesday.
Mr Heng said the majority of parents are supportive partners of teachers.
But he highlighted instances of excessive demands made by parents on teachers.
Mr Heng gave the example of the mother who filed a police report upon finding out that her son's teacher had cut his hair before his PSLE oral exam which the mother claimed had ruined her son's S$60 haircut.
