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... 🙂

Ha ha! OK, but just make sure it is a room and not a loom.

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".

Change is inevitable - except from a vending machine.

I think the school representative that said "it is a small matter" should have his or her head shaved and see if they think it is still a small matter.

Why do you think most adult Thai women have long hair?

They hated the short hair as kids ... probably a trick by the patriarchal society to make them fit their taste? Oh, well it is no actually a patriarchal society ... but more a matriarchal one 😄 

As soon as they have kids the long hair gets a cut....just like the schoolgirls..but it must be very hot to wear i can guess..

M4? This is criminal.

 

Force them to tie it back in one style if you must. Send them home for a haircut. Cutting their hair in public. I'm certain that was a big win for admistrators and teachers alike.

 

Looking how poorly education is going I'd really have to ask if they don't have something better to do with their time?

My first thought was:
school principal with sawdust in the scull can only be important by physically assaulting a student. 

Would be better to make the students of the (my guess: obviously) mediocre school excel.

This is why I advocate military service for all, 2 years conscription. Be trained how to obey orders.

the video shows many girls with longer hair than hers. If I was her father I would be suing the teacher and the school. this is a total disgrace to the school and everyone involved.

I am from America and if this happened there the girl would be getting millions of dollars from the teacher and school and everyone involved would be fired and the one cutting the hair would go to jail for assault.

Many private schools attribute most of their uniform traditions and dress codes back to their British public school roots. The formal starched collars and tails worn by Eton College boys are world-famous, but they are hardly typical of a normal school uniform these days. Much more common is a looser dress code consisting of the ubiquitous blazer, white shirt, school tie, slacks, socks and black shoes; or the option of wearing dresses, or a blazer and blouse with slacks or skirts are pretty much standard for girls.

 

Proponents of the policy claimed that the dress code created a climate for education which led to improved test scores and better discipline.

 

The real secret to success is consistently enforcing rules and regulations. Hold students accountable and you will see results.

Thai schools are just trying to be like their British teachers.

Yes in the west it is assault and no doubt the teacher/s would be lynched by the parents... but of course the cutting of hair is general practice in the government “free schools” where the small minded staff want to make the kids “Suffer for being poor ... wwf don’t they realise by taking away their individuality make them less confident in future .. of coarse this doesn’t happen in the private schools, because if it ever did people would walk, = end of the school ... PLEASE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER THAILAND !!!

I am well rebuked, AjarnMartin.

But you have to admit that the image conjured up of school pupils' being squeezed into cans ('canned') was  just too funny for some of us to resist remarking upon it  - or 'liking' the posts that did!

The school has said that they were within their rights

Of course they're not 'within their rights'.  It's assault!

said the cutting happened on January 10th and was done according to the school rules. 

 

The school rules certainly does not allow a teacher to cut a student's hair and if it did then the rule would be illegal.

From what I recall the ministry did abolish the rule on a national basis but left it up to schools to make their own rules.
