  • The teacher that cut the little Cammon girls hair should be fired. That is an act of violance against the young girl's physical body. What or whom will she attack the next time she is frustrated? Think about it as your child, especially since they all are entrusted to your care. Closing the web site will not avoid the outcry. Donna M. Cammon, Atlanta, Ga.
