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

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this will have a lasting impression on a student. It's an ignorant rule.

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.

And to comply with Thai law, the rules must not say that a teacher is entitled to cut a student's hair anyway, the law changed a few years back.

Is the boy / young man employed through the mainstream education system, because how can he have a teaching license?

 

In terms of subject knowledge, it's true that teacher training in many western countries gives teachers quite broad and some depth of knowledge.

 

Here in Thailand the new education degree is 5 years but somehow teachers don't have broadness or depth of many subject areas.

 

Case in point, my Thai son went to high school in Singapore, several times the science teacher at a nearby local school (knows my son went to HS in singapore) has asked son to give specific science lessons because local guy doesn't understand specific items in the curriculum.

I certainly hope he held his hand out for payment, which if possible should come from the incompetent teacher.

 

But I don't think anyone should hold their breath.

One of our Thai Nephews is a village teacher.  He is a serious and dedicated young man and I know that he treats the children well and is liked and respected by his students.  However, after Military service, he trained as an electrician and then took up teaching.  Zero teacher training for him and zero checks done on his competence to teach.  I do like the lad,  but his level of pure knowledge and awareness of the outside world is minimal to say the least.  That says everything  that needs to be said about the education system here.  

So your village teacher represents all teachers in Thailand? There are good schools, with proper teachers here too.

Fantastic quote (above), Oziex1 ! You should put an 'intellectual copyright' on it! It is one of the best I've ever seen on Thaivisa.

My God -  you are right! One could write a whole book illustrating, detailing and buttressing the point you are making here. 

Well said, my friend!

 

Fully agree, Thais could learn a bit from some of the comments on here.

 

They won't of course, Thais are Thais.

Yes? Perhaps you could name a the school - and a the teacher, for that matter . . . they'd enjoy your words of praise that have been thin on the ground, lately.
