my mutable to do what's a no. 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 teaches. me. 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.
i hope all. who will die from dying 101 it was a moment 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 will never will but you can tell me what. the ministry gets disagree. abuse is widespread in schools and they have taken their case on to the streets. they want to go
a bit more than even the limits i mean. 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 when he got to have the will i would he. says he used to think frequent physical punishment was to be expected in schools. but i want to know what i thought like on t.v. and we're happy to that they gave it up so i'm going to help you out 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
link that they have. on hold. on how many how i'm going up and. saying that. one is a guy who holds up your harley and are like all that hollywood who up to one of those who want to yammer. these draconian rules can cause serious harm. could mean they can open up our. introduces me to benjamin pawn point by one of the founders of the bad student group she oversees the group's facebook page to coordinate protests and call for
forms the group also post videos recorded by students in class rooms across the country. wholly on a hot cum top live look there are young and basically got hooked on the soon on the net who was a me i'd have nick on the. create to. guide of me and by yes head that my oh my oh my mind have bangle i had fun food let me go on. yeah hey nick hall had it all me you not sell a whole lot. call me young and come for tea. while i. ploy believes that physical punishments reflect thailand's educational culture. seung sahn thought he. got. 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 yeah evidence is in plain sight. well if you doubt it but i'm. not saying. thanks. and more who more c.d.o. cycle how to get around to one. gun. 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 point reform a 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 i had my call and i took out my thumb that been. made a captain have put it in. time and overall budget. if actually allocated to education to 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 me is also misspent inefficiently all the case here the way that when you hope i'm on call phone or pioneer set up soon. i'll have to give me a reason to go through all high. cotton through you and now i hope you can
come to. my. make use column and i don't know where you. really. read what i learned how to read and. were go through a checkpoint. however the ministry admits there are serious issues with the quality of teachers that need to be addressed. you up in. the middle go saw. the mirror we've got all sorts of outside 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. why the engine a crash. for example has been kind of tied to conditions
for a long time now and it's officially banned in 2000 when you go in talk to teachers they do would mentally say they're still practice. because the one good thing was 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 teachers training is that they need different way of endangered skills and they need to develop a community does teach us. to get a teacher's view on training i meet the need our program called a primary teacher at a government school. and that he might be at being. me on how well what i had. done and carney i'll make
a call and be that. polite it all back in korea he did it at the bell and even honey how. but she says the government offers little support for retraining teachers. they laugh. but i'm not mad he may climb up a partner how you young. dr archer ordered high invited ronny deila to join a trial training session you don't diversity to introduce new teaching methods. teachers as. an authority and naturally stand in front of the classroom. we deliver what students should. we want to be able to change things dynamic so
that students are so care and students so. active. participants. the training methods developed here focus not on enforcing rules but on empathy with the students. and. teach the. only am i gonna get that automatically if you don't we whack. my partner through my life. who know my life. is coming up in court have no money make long. including just on the fact that he says he only had money at my last loud out wage hike up that he don't have to love finding a home and i think of one can't you know that a lot of 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 filed a case for the parents of $26.00 students. court ordered the school to pay compensation. but not all of the parents accepted the result. now one couple who could be. a lot of them they could be called i like. that is what. i thought by. that when. these parents say there's a larger payout would send a powerful message to the school. on how my. lonely and that.
my level and blank how my own court. china and pretend on whose sons were both abused at the school are among those continuing to fight for more compensation. calling me. away. that. i'm a parent myself and every week i take my daughter to school and leave her in the care 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
fear their day and 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 control public schools can employ inadequately trained teachers. well we're. going to. use all we have to print saul. but these promised reforms may not come fast enough for the parents and kids on the front line according to dr t. . 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 don't know. thank. god mainly and. in the meantime chon great and his family have voted with their feet. has started at a new school and they hope that's our son. soon become just a bad memory they continue to pursue their legal case hopefully that shining a light on the abuse their son suffered a powerful message that children should be kept safe in thailand schools.
