    Summary

    During an ongoing custody dispute, a teacher sent an email to pupil N.N.’s father. In the email, the teacher inter alia expressed an opinion about N.N.’s mother. The Parliamentary Ombudsman has previously pronounced that staff at pre-schools and schools are to remain neutral in the event of custody disputes, etc. That a teacher has email contact with one parent is a natural element of the pre-school’s activities. Special care ought to be taken therefore when there is a custody dispute between the parents of a pupil.

    The Parliamentary Ombudsman criticizes the teacher for expressing an opinion about N.N.’s mother in an email in a way that was not neutral.
