I think i would have kicked him fair in the nuts if I was there.

Common sense, a very hard to come by trait in this part of the world but then again I have only lived for here for a year.

Wonder what would have happened if all the students had of just stood there or maybe turned their backs on him

What can you expect when the man at the very top makes his wife and mistress do exactly the same in public !

Aren’t these ceremonies/rituals usually arranged by other school officials and not directly by the school director?

Prostrating before teachers is a normal show of respect and thanks for their sacrifice to become (low paying) teachers who are supposed to be morally upright etc, but from a western perspective it can seem a bit overboard and undignified.

I don't believe I've seen this on top 100 list of Thai schools so it's not well known nor especially good. Perhaps in the province it's the go-to secondary. I really keep up on competitive schools, no idea here.

I agree, its a part of the Thai culture. But in this case he took it a bit too far.  Maybe he thinks he is untouchable, acting like a king.

nobodies that get a promotion like this or paid for it

 

they get an inch of power and start abusing it

 

vice director of my kid's school is the same

 

was a teacher, people liked her

 

became vice director and it went to her head

 

shouts at children for no reason, makes children, even laugh with death of loved one and then goes on with her day

I wondered what they were taught in Thai schools besides marching and Thainess!

Prostrating of course

Its a Thai tradition, If you redraw the line then redraw all the lines.
