The director of a Chonburi school has told the Thai media that assault against children at school is perfectly ok.

It is to keep them in line.

Director Samrerng at a Ban Bung school spoke to Sanook after an online clip went viral on Thai social media.

The clip showed a stick being used. An aunt of a boy complained that her nephew only came to class late because he was helping another teacher.

School authorities scurried for cover after the clip surfaced. It only came to light after the aunt shared it. It happened in July.

The director said the class was an unruly one. The children and parents all knew what sanctions would be used. The children could be hit two,three or even five times for various infractions including coming in late.

A local sergeant had been in the school to discuss the situation.

Alumnus said it was not a violent school though punishments of this kind went on, reported Sanook.

Thaivisa notes that corporal punishment was supposed to have been outlawed in Thai schools but the practice is still widespread.
