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

Recommended Posts

Same problem in our house.

My son aged 18, in his last year at High school.

Two weeks ago he had his hair cut by the local barber, neat and tidy, the usual cut he has. Three days later his class teacher told him that it was too long on top, so cut a handful out of the crown of his head. So back to the barber to get it recut to the length of the teacher's cut.

He has always had his hair neat and tidy because 3 years ago the school had a blitz on all the boys hair. Any student whose hair was deemed be be incorrect had a handful cut out, using a corkscrew type cutter. All the boys in his class were given this treatment. It left a cut of about 8 inches long, down to the scalp. So then all the recuts were so short to match the very low depth of the teachers cut.  So they all made an effort to keep their hair in the accepted manner. 

Thankfully he finishes at the school in 5 weeks. He has no time for any of the teachers who did the cutting.

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. 

Are you sure about this? I grew up in a system where the idea of a uniform was to level-out the social divide and prevent the rich kids from flashing off all their designer gear in front of the poor ones.. I'm embarrassed to think I'm unaware that uniforms were about academic achievement . . .

What you said.  By preventing rich kids from flashing off the designer gear the only difference is achievement in school - sports or academic.

The existence of numerous Thai 'universities' in no way is an indicator of their intellectual calibre and quality. And the knowledge base of most Thai 'graduates' is (I think many of us here will testify) embarrassingly thin and flimsy.

 

Have you seen the international listings of universities and noted where most Thai 'educational' institutions stand in such rankings? They rank from unimpressive - to appalling!

I have and many Thai universities are ranked above universities in the USA or UK.  That does not mean that the hundreds of universities in the UK and USA ranked below Mahidol, Chulalongkorn or Chiang Mai university are not good schools.  In any event graduating from any university is better than dropping out of high school.  If it says nothing else than you can delay instant gratification of money being a taxi driver for the chance to become educated and make a difference.

When have you even seen a Thai listening to a farang????

Answer, never.

Everyday, so that says more about you than the Thai's
