Teacher’s Punishment

In Courtesy of Thairath

PICHIT – When a little 2nd grader couldn’t remember his times tables, he received a punishment from his lady teacher. She pinched his face and twisted his ears, giving him bruises; she grabbed his legs and hung him upside down and smacked his head on the ground. The boy’s parents informed police.

After an investigation, it was discovered that the teacher had done this kind of punishment many times before, hanging kids upside down and banging their heads against the ground – preferably a concrete ground – but this time, when the boy cried in pain, she ignored him and continued.

The teacher refused to admit her cruelty against the boy, saying that she had given homework to everyone and that the task was to say the times table out loud to her the next morning. Only the boy could not do it, for example, he said “3X3 is 3 or 5X5 is 5.” The teacher was infuriated by the child’s inability to recite the multiplications table.

Charges are yet to be laid after further inquiry.
