A new punishment in the Thai teacher's armory - shaming the kids on social media!

Thai social media was alive with positive comment and laughter as a Korat teacher decided on a modern version of shaming naughty students into better behavior.

 

The teacher had two M3 (Year 10 in the British system) students stand in a small square and hug each other - then peck each other on the cheek.

 

And the unusual punishment for the teenage boys seems to have done the trick -  Daily News online reported that the boys' behavior has improved.

 

 

Tha Sala Prasit Suksa assistant director Songserm Tengaksorn told the Thai news media that the boys were misbehaving during last Thursday's "Teachers' Day" celebrations.

 

Teachers' Day is observed in almost every school in Thailand and is a solemn occasion when children are supposed to be on their best behavior as they pay respects to their school mistresses and masters.

 

It was likely that all their friends saw their humiliation - the story was shared 19,000 times and viewed by a staggering 2.5 million Thais.

 

Most of those thought it was funny and a good idea to get children to behave, reported Daily News.

well I do not see any thing wrong in using a language that your interlocutor would understand....plainly a matter on getting on the same (upper) or (lower) level with whom you communicate with!!........I would call this a very smart move in communication!!!

If you tried to get two boys that age in England to do the same, the teacher would be invited to "go forth and multiply," though they probably wouldn't use that many words.

And quite possibly a twisted perv into the bargain.

Why would you want to get two boys doing that, of all the punishments possible, otherwise?

And then put it online for all the other pervs to watch?

And get praised for it by the dumb families. Only in Thailand!

Definately a sick twisted person who has been given the care of children

You don't have to spend much time around the school system to see how absurd and backwards the whole thing is. The whole point seems to be only to instill a deep sense of status and submission, and how to behave towards above and below you. Learning academic skills appears to be a distant side effect that may or may not occur. 

School is where you get your cultural identity, that is why Thais behave the way they do and it is also why western kids are now brain washed snowflakes without an ounce of wisdom or common sense.

I think Thai culture will probably still be around after western culture has burned to ground.

well said mr Canuck...

some kids are strong some are weeker..teaching and parenting dynamics cannot be a broad brush sweep,each child deserves ,but seldom receives the guidance correct for his or her specific needs...its hard to control the education system,but you can control his or friends..and that is a bigger influence on the development of your child...the key is a smart and healthy balance...

this is a 'teacher ? while bettering behavior may be a worthwhile goal, shaming children publicly is not the right way to do that
