In Thailand are schools allowed to make children get their hair cut?


Recommended Posts

I'm asking this because they're asking my 6 year old daughter to get her hair cut, It's not that long. I thought that the Thai gov. brought a rule in a few years ago saying that they couldn't do this against the wishes of the parent. Does anyone know anything about this before I go and confront the Director?

 If this is in the wrong forum, feel free to move it...

Moved to the Family and Children forum.   Schools where I am require students to cut their hair very short, always have.   I seem to recall reading something recently -- as in this

Zyphodb, just phoned my wife, she reckons it is at the discretion of the school director. Best leave it alone mate, dont make waves for your daughters sake.

Well it seems like the consensus is to get her haircut, and to keep the peace as I work there too, I suppose she'll have her hair cut. bl**dy dinosaurs, to be expected of a feudal country I spose, one

I've seen some articles where the teachers cut the hair of female students....What the reasons or circumstances were, I don't recall....

They didn't lop it real short, it still went down their back to about a bra line length.....

I was surprised, my wife wasn't....

Just do what all the other kids are doing as it is easier that way.  Kids don't want to stand out or be teased.

The high schools were I worked had a barber on site certain days and at the morning greeting lines some kids were pulled out and put in the barber line to be cut before the day started. I believe they also made the kids pay for it...maybe 20 baht or something like that.

It must be 6 or 7 years since the government removed the requirement for the girls to have their hair cut short. But then it was left up to the individual schools whether to continue with the rule.

My biggest concern in this area was not that my daughters hair had to be trimmed to meet acceptable standards but that it had to be dyed/re-dyed black sometimes more than once a month if the roots began to show a different color.  Frequent hair coloring can be or is damaging to the hair over time.  Any natural color hair should be acceptable and forced dying should be banned.

The law was just flipped to allow all schools for boys and girls option to not cut their hair. But it left open a clause that allows school boards to allow a specific hairstyle for their school as long as it follows the regulations and conditions. The regulations are no perms, no bleach no facial hair.

 

Don't figure this was also made public in the royal Gazette.

 

Upon taking my daughter to school today I saw many boys that had been buzzed. I asked her if it was same at her school and she said yes. BS and an atrocity.
