We understand that some (a minority) of the teachers at this school regularly hit the students, especially those in the younger primary age groups. In particular one female teacher, Ms Phasuk (นางผาสุข ถาวร) a P.E teacher at the school.
We are told that the majority of teachers do not hit the children, and indeed that they hate the teachers who do this. However they refuse to do anything to stop it and, in our opinion, this makes them equally guilty by association.
We are also told that the beatings only occur in the Thai Programme and not in the English Programme of the school. However the two programmes are part of the SAME school and therefore, in our opinion, equally guilty for refusing to protect ALL the children in the school.
The school organises regular student exchange schemes to the USA and we are currently finding out who the agencies are in the USA and will be notifying them accordingly.
