Old guidelines on teachers’ ethics to get a revamp

They aren't but for some reason the rule of law is often ignored.

 

I’m ok if the teacher uses a ruler on my son’s hands or legs if he’s naughty in school. Kids need to learn that there are consequences for their actions at an early age imo.

 

Too many sissy parents these days who refuse to discipline their children unfortunately.

Also, teachers' egos need to be kept in check. More young teachers, less older teachers who still think this is the 1950s. Innovation and creative thinking cannot develop under dictatorship of a egocentric teacher.

The rule of law is broke on a large scale in most walks of life in Thailand, laws are only for those who cannot afford to break them, no enforcement by any authority.

Seems like the speaker doesn't even know the law;

 

- bottom line teachers cannot be given the authority to hit students by anybody, for a very specific reason - it's again the law, specific laws which have existed already for many years.

Plenty of other ways other than hitting them to punish a child so that they learn of consequences.

Plus way too many regular incidents of teachers causing bruising and more to little kids.

 

Remember the incident where the older brother got caned 39 times because the transgressor, his little brother was too young to get caned.

That definitely needs to be addressed.

Well, at least you didn't claim that corporal punishment never did YOU any harm!

Lots of waffle and good intentions, but lacking detail on what exactly needs to be done and how. Hopefully, this education watchdog will eventually show its teeth and come up with a strategy and national curriculum to lift Thailand off its lowly position in the global academic league table.

True, but at least:

“We need to shift from rote-learning and focus on being practical,” Tisana said, adding that this will help initiate big changes in Thailand’s educational sector."

 

In my recollection first time ever the term 'rote-learning' has been mentioned and even bigger surprise an actual comment that we need to move away from rote learning.

 

Lets' wait and see.

Would making a student do push-ups in EP science class for some infraction be considered corporal punishment?

 

Screwing around, incorrect answer repeatedly, not doing homework, speaking Thai?

 

Purely hypothetical.
