Hardly in league with this though.



90-year-old Saudi to get 100 lashes

A 90-year-old Saudi man will be lashed 100 times with the whip after he was convicted of smashing the windscreen of a judge’s car to retaliate against a previous verdict against him, a local newspaper reported on Tuesday.
The court in the central town of Taif found the old man guilty of damaging the judge’s car while he was preaching at a local mosque during open-air Friday prayers, Sahafaonline Arabic language paper said.

The man told court that he had done so in reprisal for an earlier sentence against him by the judge, the paper said. “The court sentenced the man to 100 lashes and seven days in prison,” it added.

UNICEF comments on Thai school punishments

UNICEF Thailand has issued a declaration encouraging all schools nationwide not to give severe punishments to students after research has shown that maltreated students usually will have lower educational performance.

Deputy UNICEF Thailand Representative Andrew Morris stated that many schools still chose not to comply with the regulations imposed by the Ministry of Education and the National Committee for Child Protection, which banned inhumane and violent punishments.

Mr Morris suggested that the regulation should be enforced in a stricter manner, and that teachers should be trained to discipline students in ways other than  caning them.

Meanwhile, Child Protection Specialist of UNICEF’s East Asia and Pacific regional office, Amalee McCoy, cited numerous articles of research that showed that children experiencing maltreatment, discrimination, or violence at school usually have lower academic performances than children without these harsh experiences.

Ms McCoy added that many countries in this region also lacked a national policy to protect children in the education system, a handbook for teachers on how to treat students with risk of violence, and appropriate codes of conduct on how to treat and respect rights of students.

Earlier, an art teacher from a school in the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima punished his 40 students by hitting them with a Rattan Palm cane wrapped with electrical wire for their failure to clean up their living quarters.

The teacher was expelled after the video clip was exposed to the public.

This guy looks like he wants to play baseball.  About a year back there was a farang teacher at St Mary's  who also threw a whiteboard eraser at a student not intending to hit him.  Unfortunately it did, and the teacher was asked to leave.  It turned out the student's father was a cop.  I wonder if there are any other violent teachers over at that school, including the farang teachers.  You never know.

Quite a lot of the parents sending their kids to Saint Mary's are police or military.

The "arguments" about whether CP is right or wrong will go on until the cows come home. My personal feelings are mixed.

However the FACT is that it is illegal in Thai schools and has been for 5 years. (law - http://www.corporalpunishmentthailand.com/the-law.html)

Here is the MoE regulations should any teacher be caught.

"Ministry of Education regulations strictly prohibit corporal punishment, and any teacher or other school worker who uses corporal punishment on students should be dismissed and subject to other professional and legal sanctions.”

Professional sanctions = the removal of their teachers license. That means they would not be able to teach again unless as an un-accredited teacher at (much) lower salary.

Dirtydog - if your teacher girlfriend is hitting children she is not only committing a criminal act she is putting her entire career at risk. They do it becasue they think they will get away with it, but it only takes one parent, one time, to smell the money and thats another good teacher lost. You would be doing her a big favor if you made her aware of this as the CPU are getting teachers sacked on an almost daily basis now. It is probably only a matter of time until a parent reports her. Could be a day, a month, a year, ten years but it will happen one day.

If anyone is interested the teacher from St Marys was in court on Friday.

He + two other teachers at the school Mrs. Piyachat Khaonok and Mr. Payao Ipiti were sentenced to one year in prison and 8000 baht fine each.

The prison sentences were suspended for two years as they all pleaded guilty and offered to pay 120,000 each in medical costs.

There was no mention of whether their teaching licenses were revoked.

In a similar case in Frankfurt/Germany recently  a sentence of one year in prison was handed to a teacher who abused and insulted students at a special school for maladjusted juveniles. The prison sentence was suspended due to him confessing at court and upon the condition to donate € 1.000 (about 40.000 THB) to a charity. Due to the prison term of not less than one year he'll loose his job and his position as civil servant.

That makes the decision of the Nakhon Ratchasima Court very much at 'international standard'.  :)
