Double cut! Teachers shear student's lovely long hair AND cut grades of her friend who filmed it

Thai social media went into meltdown after a clip showed teachers at a Kanchanaburi school cutting a high school student's beautiful long hair. 

 

But as netizens slammed the actions of the school came news that the friend who filmed the shearing has had her grades cut as a punishment for causing the school to lose face. 

 

A school representative has said it is terrible that such a "small matter" has caused so much trouble as she had a go at social media groups for "attacking her school". 

 

The school has said that they were within their rights and everyone knows the rules. But most netizens disagreed, said Sanook, saying the school had overstepped the mark. 

 

The short clip shows a teacher with a ruler measuring the M4 student's hair. Then another teacher with scissors cuts it. 

 

The rules say that it cannot be more than 9 inches from the top of the ears. 

 

Phawadee Jittamai, deputy director of student services at Kanchanaburi Khroh School in Muang district, said the cutting happened on January 10th and was done according to the school rules. 

 

These were published in the school handbook and everyone knew them since orientation day at the start of term.

 

She said that the girl concerned had been warned many times but had refused to have her hair cut. 

 

She confirmed that the student who filmed the incident had had her grade points cut for causing the school to lose face. 

 

Thai Rath said that the girl who filmed on her phone had apologized and taken the clip down from social media. It was posted on "Black Cat" on Facebook. 

 

Thai Rath quoted Phawadee as saying that the student would not be expelled - would just lose grade points. Her parents had contacted the school about that matter. 

 

The media said that the situation in the school was calm - in stark contrast to social media where the clip was being shared thousands of times. 

 

A M4 school representative called Sarita Lakhonsee was more forthright than the deputy director.

 

Sarita said: "It's a shame that such a small matter has caused such a furor and caused the school to be attacked. 

 

"The attacks from certain social media groups are unwarranted. The rules are clear and we don't insist on the hair being too short. The student knew the rules and that's that".

Yes, that sounds to be pretty well in-line with Thailand's forward-thinking Education dept. Loss-of-face = loss-of-grades . . . good maths? . . . well, at least better than the normal.
