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

Recommended Posts

Attending a Catholic High school, the glaring look by Sister Mary Alexander was more than enough encouragement to get a hair trim. I don't recall a "length rule" but a "duck tail in back" easily got the Nuns attention and it was not the kind of attention you wanted.

Uniforms and haircuts are trying to take away the rich kid advantage and have all the students look the same so only their academic accomplishments stand out.  It's embarrassing that you would be unaware of this. 

Your argument rather falls at the first fence, when you consider that the recorded "academic accomplishments" of pupils are so often directly related to the amount of influence (💰) that the parent are prepared or able to deploy...

The teacher, or whoever is cutting the hair, has longer hair? Also a girl in the background also has long hair! I believe there is more to this story than we are hearing?

They put pupils in tins as well?

Eligius and bluesofa - whilst it's great fun for a while, we could be here for a lifetime with proofreading the English mistakes on TV. I therefore only comment sporadically... 🙂 I'm going for a lie-down in a darkened room... 🙂

My understanding of the law is that this was a common assault, and were it my daughter on the receiving end, the teacher would be feeling very uncomfortable right about now, and my daughter would be in a new school.

 

The problem is that laws in Thailand are not enforced; cultural 'unwritten' laws supersede all else. Thailand won't grow up until that changes, if at all. There is no sign that Thais recognise the sewer they have created, of the need to make changes. As the prophet wrote: "If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got. If you want something different, then yopu have to make a change".

 

 

 

What “prophet” ?

Maybe i am wrong, but i am sure this rule about hair length was abolished a couple of years ago.

If that is the case, school director and teachers involved should be sacked.

Yes, it was. There is now no law which says that either the boys or girls have to have certain lengths of hair. However, individual schools do still have their own rules, regardless of the national (government) rules.

If the rules say the hair must be no more than 9 inches from the top of the ears, should the teacher not be holding the ruler VERTICALLY.

The ears could not be seen so it was guesstimate.

Well mate, i showed my wife the video when she came home.

She was shocked that a teacher would do that, as that practice has been banned by the government. 

Individual school rules are illegal.

Now before anybody starts telling me i am wrong, my wife is a school director.

Look at how many other girls in the video have long hair.

Seems to me that once a precedent is set and established in Thailand, thereafter change is very hard to achieve. A kind of cultural stubbornness.
