Uuuuuh,,,,yeah!

Like all rules in Thailand are so well observed!

Like drunk driving, driving a motorcycle without helmet, not driving your truck down a road against the traffic...and...and...and!

But sure: when an insecure teacher wields the power to cute unruly girl's hair...that's when you observe the law!

And laugh at the sad ignorance of the teacher!

Great example of "Thai Logic" and how "Losing Face" works.

 

Nobody has lost face due to cutting the hair (the action itself). Face was only lost due to the girl filming it and sharing it on social media. 

 

You steal or lie is okay... until someone tells on you. Then it is time to play the "Lose face" card and hit back with anger.

 

The basic way of thinking is so extremely primitive that you have to witness it, to actually believe it.

My son who is 7 is always being tokd by his teacher to gave his hair cut even though it is already short and neat. Uf she would show the same dedication to his teaching I would be very happy. Individuality us very much frowned upon. And I think we all know the reason why.

Yeah...I have heard of those mystical beings as well!

From field of work, I speak to sales executives on a daily basis and some of my appointments start with "Please sapeak englit saloly"! and I have said nothing else than "Good morning and thank you for your time. Would you like a cup of coffee?"

Mind you: I work in tourism, where "englit" should be generally understood as the chance of working with people from...well...Farangistan, is a common possibility!

 

I know a girl in Bangkok with a University Degree in English. Cute girl, although we never really manage to talk much, as she can not put together one understandable sentence in English. Google translate is a great invention.

So you've sat in on his village classroom and watched him teach?

yes. a few times.  My youngest is also studying to be a teacher in the UK and she has competed her international work experience  requirement at his school.  You are clearly assuming things you dont know, always a mistake.

The funniest part is the girl filming got her grades lessened... I have never heard of such a thing before, that is the most insane aspect of all of this 

I am sure many Thais would find it logical. After all the school lost "Face" by the filming and sharing... not by acting completely stupid before that.

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

I was making a point about teacher training in LOS, which is virtually none existent.

I was brought up in the 80's in Germany!

No school-uniforms anywhere!

 

Yeah, then with your superiour german education, you are surely able to make a list of countries where kids wear school uniforms and a list where they don't. To make it a bit more complicated: pick year 1985. Hint: Germany is an exception!

The girl who took the video worked hard to get her grades so out of revenge the teacher destroyed her

What is wrong with having a rule that says hair longer than a certain length must be tied up in a bun or similar? That was always the rule in the UK armed forces and police etc and worked well there. 

 

But that would demand logical thinking, not taught in schools or teacher training colleges here!

He told me that he simply couldn't believe that the students he interviewed were so ignorant (his words) of many of the basic processes and had huge gaps in their knowledge-base, and he reckoned that they were at about the same level of education that he would expect from an 18-year-old, fresh out of school, and just beginning a first-level degree course in Europe..
...

The same would have happened more or less everywhere outside of a few countries in Europe. Sure, some elite universities in the US would have high educated PhDs ... probably some in Australia, too. However the world copied more or less the failing US education system. Even Germany downgraded the university education from Diploma and Vordiplom to Master and Bachelor. The stupid idea was that a German Bachelor now is comparable in time and effort and grade with an american one.

I don't know which universities in Germany still have old school or mixed graduations ...

 

However this all pretty simple to tackle. If people go to a "grading school" and are there "X years" then why do you expect them to have an education on par with your own when you took nearly 2*X years to achieve the same "title"?

I grew up in Germany a little earlier. I would have hated having to wear a school uniform. Now many decades later, as parent, I do see the virtue.
