Thai PE teacher who assaulted students transferred! Alumni praise "great teacher"

A PE teacher at a school in Ayuthaya was in tears after education officials told him he was being transferred to clerical duties while an investigation takes place into an assault on many students.

 

Som had been filmed using a stick to beat female students aged about 14. 

 

In addition when one tried to protect her bottom from the savage thrashing he shouted at her in Thai: "Why are you trying to protect yourself - you "b*tch".

 

After the meeting - in which reporters were not allowed - a whole host of alumni showed up to present flowers and give their support. This caused Som to burst into floods of tears.

 

He would only say: "I've told the parents and director all I know". He then left. 

 

Sorasak, 38, Som's ex-student said he was a great teacher who prepared his students wonderfully for Thai society. He also brought great credit to the school whether it was in the sphere of sport or the school orchestra, reported Sanook.

 

He taught all about responsibility and discipline. Sorasak said that he had been hit by the teacher harder than the girls had experienced.

 

This he referred to as "exorcising the ghost". He would be hit from the ankles all the way up to chase out laziness. This all resulted in him getting a job after school and keeping employment to this day, he claimed. 

 

Suchanaree of the Ayuthaya education authority said that Som would be doing clerical duties while a committee tries to get to the truth of what happened. 

 

The parent wanted her daughter to remain at the school and seeing as it was term two wanted no disruption as she needed continuity.

 

The girl's injuries and psychological state were examined.

The mother of the 14 year old girl in the video, Wanlapha, 32, said the actions of the school and their initial explanations had been a positive first step. 

 

But the teacher concerned hadn't bothered to contact her. She was going to consult other family members before deciding her next course of action. 

 

She said her daughter was stressed out by what had happened and she feared psychological damage. 

 

Wanlapha said she was someone who respects authority but punishment should be appropriate and foul language should not be used. 

 

Thaivisa notes that corporal punishment in Thai schools is illegal. 

 

But many teachers who assault children are let off with warnings after offering apologies as a society used to decades of abuse of children comes to terms with modern day laws.

Hit my 14 year old daughter like that with a stick, and it will be the last time you hit anyone.

Definitely the solution, without anyone knowing of course.
