With regards to Jeanette Tan's post on "Police investigate CPF protest march at Hong Lim Park" , I want to highlight the use of labels.
In her article, the use of "special needs children" is a form of labeling of the children. The proper term that should be used is "children with special needs". It's definitely not acceptable when such labels are used on children. Moreover, the use of this term on online media is misleading to the society. I hope that the writer of the article will edit the article and ensure that such a mistake will not happen again. As an avid reader of Yahoo Singapore, I'm shocked and appalled that such a term exist in an article that grabs my attention once I click on Yahoo Singapore.
