Private colleges to be asked to rethink the ban against students with tattoos or piercing ears

Privately-owned vocational colleges will be asked by the Education Ministry to reconsider their decision not to accept students who have piercing ears or tattoos.

Education permanent secretary Associate Professor Kamchorn Tatiyakavee said Thursday that he had instructed Mr Atinan Pakbara, secretary-general of Private Education Promotion Committee to invite the president of the Association of Private Technology and Vocational Colleges for discussion about the possibility of reversing the decision to ban students with piercing ears or tattoos purportedly to prevent hooligans from being admitted into their campuses.

Assoc Prof Kamchorn said, personally, he didn’t think all students who have tattoos or piercing ears are hooligans or bad. Piercing ears or tattoos are merely some symbols of the youths, he added.

He said he understood the intention of the management of these colleges to prevent hooligans from being admitted into their colleges. But, nevertheless, he wanted the management to rethink their decision and to give a chance of these students to study in their colleges.
