Assumption College Sriracha
The latest incident reported in September 2011 involves Ms. Wilawan Eaamvijarn
The fact that Ms Wilawan claims that hitting children is legal (it is NOT) clearly indicates that the administrators at this school do not make teachers aware of the law.
We contacted the school director in 2010 and his response was “if parents cannot accept teachers hitting children they should find another school”. He too seems ignorant of the fact that it it illegal for a teacher to hit a child in Thailand. This includes by hand or stick and hard or soft – all are illegal.
Also one head of department (female) told us “Thailand has many problems to face, child abuse [in schools] is unimportant.
If you are a parent considering this school we urge you to think long and hard as abuse appears to be a daily occurrence in this particular school.
