a lot of course all in one. who 2 or who maybe. are you going on one i recall when you. might be mutable to do what's on your. who. are going to be married to mr cool enough to do need to eat out on. my p.c. . is it the responsibility of the education ministry to deal with the schools that have abusive teachers. got me. in. so. that 6 months after the crimes were 1st reported the ministry has failed to take any significant action against the school why has the thai education system failed
its students do you will. die hall. i hope all. who will die from dying $100.00 will run it was over to me. in the ministry insists that what happened. is not representative of thailand's education system. you know in him that i don't know who. you were noble but you can go to me what. the ministry gets disagree. abuse is widespread in school. and they have taken their case on to the streets.
well you know what my dad wanted but all they want a little bit more than even the limits. they called themselves the bad student group school students from all over thailand who are campaigning for education reforms. today i'm meeting with one of their members. to find out more about their grievances. when diana hauled out. the. beat up be but you know. what well. i don't hold the dominate one and he got to have the what i would he. says he used to think frequent physical punishment was to be expected in schools. but i want to know more i thought like on thieving. to obama that they gave it up
so i'm going to put you on. the bad student group says that the extensive use of physical punishment is about instilling a sense education with suffocating rules on everything from what they wear to the length of the head. thing going. on hold. on how many how i'm going up and what thing that i had how it. was a guy who hold up your harley and are like all that hollywood who have to all of those who want to yeah man eating. these draconian rules can cause serious harm. could mean they can open up a lot that are like what i was like i think you read.

up and got to be a. poor meet that. little nazi t.s.a. popcorn at lee and loud i. look at. you. and she says it's not just school videos that show oppression the evidence is in plain sight. who were not here. not saying. thank the woman. and more who more c.d.o. cycle how to get around 201 when you were. one of thailand's most respected academics dr. agrees. the 1st kind of authoritarian and so. is in a classroom because
a classroom is where they have to they have to be deferential they don't ask questions. they're being. not robots but. in a way. so what is to be done according to ploy reforma start at the top of the ministry . playing that song that's it's only a guess also he got me a. while when me but i had my whole 2 and i took out that been. made a captain have put it in. a while but. substantially. to educate. education is to get the largest chunk of the of the national budget. some 20 percent and a lot of the money goes through the bureaucracy and being a lot of it also misspent inefficiently all that katie at the way.
home on call phone or pioneer said absolutely. well i certainly and resolved to hire. cutting through you and now i hope you come to. my. make use column and the lottery and. really. only what i learn how to read and who has a free attack going to you. however the ministry. issues the quality of teachers to be addressed. in the book people will make that course all let's not put out a nina. without those sorts of outside of a. doctor . from my head on university has been studying thailand's education system.
she believes that the problems are rooted in how teachers have traditionally been trained. violence in a classroom. for example has been kind of tied to conditions for a long time and it's official banton 2000 when you go in talk to teachers they do would mentally say orders to practice. because the think it's the most effective way to kind of stop a behavior that is under sire. dr roger out of time is trying to reform teacher training. there are teachers who are radical believe have to change today just don't know how to test training. they need a different way of endangered and then need to develop a community does teach us. to get a teacher's view on training i meet funny dubroca uncool a primary teacher at
a government school. will not be likely at being elaborate me on how well what i had. done when connie let me take all and because that. how light it all back in korea give it a thought though and it even had a hollow. but she says the government offers little support for retraining teachers . but only. the last roll will take hold out of it but i'm not mad he may climb up a partner finding out how you young. and how i could help and i like your comment i . dr archer ordered high invited running down to join a trial training session might you don't diversify to introduce new teaching methods. teachers as. an authority and naturally
we stand in front of a classroom. we deliver what students should know. we want to be able to change things dynamic so that students are so care and students so as active. participants. the training methods developed here focus not on enforcing rules but on empathy with the students. are not. going to see. only an arm moment that might see all the magic you know we lack. the. who know my life. the things myself. coming up and being called have no money. including the intelligence on the fact that he says he only had money at my last
loud out a strike up that you know that they love finding me wholly and i think of one that you know they love funding. these new teaching methods might have helped the teachers that sort of manage their classrooms without resorting to physical punishment. after a lawyer runaround cowpat filed a case for the parents of $26.00 students a court order of the school to pay compensation. but not all of the parents accepted the result. now mark one couple who could be. there to look. like me. but no one can. i thought by what i got out there. that went on when i found. these parents say their to larger payout would send a powerful message to the school. on how my. lonely and
that. my level and blank couldn't come along cortland that. i'm going to. have. a. child with and pretend on whose sons were both abused at the school or among those continuing to fight for more compensation. got to me. only. that. i'm a parent myself and every week i take my daughter to school and leave her in the
terror teachers so far i've had no problems but not every parent in thailand can say the same thing and that's what. i think the education authorities they. willing to really prove up and take the school to account because they have a lot of power of course they have a lot of money to start this one example but it's the tip of the ice. and problems are exacerbated when private schools like. unlike state controlled public schools can employ inadequately trained teachers. well we're. going to. use all we have to bring salt. but these promised reforms may not come fast enough for the parents and kids on the front line according to dr to. the thai education system is notoriously slow to change.
is a creature and i think we look at the size of the student. you look at the rituals they have to go through all the national anthem singing them singing and so on and it's almost as though the tide occasion. at the grassroots has really moved forward you know. i know. thank. god mainly and. in the meantime chon with and his family have voted with their feet. has started at a new school and they hope. will soon become just a bad memory they continue to pursue their legal case hopeful that shining a light on the abuse their son suffered a powerful message that children should be kept safe in thailand schools.
