Mug-throwing teacher guilty of ‘minor’ disciplinary offence

The finding was announced by Chukiat Wisetsena, director of the Secondary Educational Service Area Office 31, yesterday morning (Sept 16).

He said a fact-finding committee found that Paithoon Klaengkrathok, a physical education teacher at Chokchaisamakkee School, committed a minor disciplinary violation in throwing a mug towards a group of students in his care.

The three-member committee headed by Samak Waikhunthod, director of Sura Nari Withaya School in Nakhon Ratchasima, concluded Mr Paithoon had thrown a mug at a group of his students, but did not intend to hit Naruedee Jodsanthia, who suffered a severe facial injury.

Her classmates said the mug hit a wall, bounced off and then hit Miss Naruedee’s head, Mr Chukiat said. Students earlier said the teacher wanted the students sit quietly outside while waiting for his class, but it was too hot to sit on the ground, so some stood up and he became angry.

The impact of the mug damaged a nerve in Miss Naruedee’s face. The injury prevented her from closing her mouth and left eye, and caused her face to distort to one side.

The investigative committee concluded that Mr Paithoon violated the Educational Personnel Act, which required teachers to refrain from bad behaviour. His action was considered to be a minor disciplinary offence, Mr Chukiat said.

The penalty could be probation, a temporary salary cut or a reduction in his pay scale. The management of the teacher’s school would decide what was appropriate within 15 days, Mr Chukiat said.

Mr Paithoon has also been charged by police with physical assault causing injury to a student.

A physical education teacher who is clearly unfit himself in body and mind! If he disfigured my daughter I would do the same to him but a hell of a lot worse. I can't believe that this terrible school judges that a teacher commits just a minor offence for disfiguring a student? This should be put all over the internet to shame this piece of crap school and its more than useless teachers. I would love to bump into the fat teacher one night for a good old fashioned lesson in manners!

He should be punished for that comb over alone.

The whole 'fact-finding'school committee is retarded!
Who wants to have his child on such a school?
Unbelievable.

Ed Sanders:  let us wait and see about how matters 'undevelope'.
This criminal behavior of this so called 'teacher' already hit the international media.

And that the school panel sees it as a minor thing is saying a lot about what is going on in thai schools.
I hope NCPO investigate this and order guide lines for teachers: Not harm/touch other peoples children!

This particular school seems not to see anything serious regarding this crime.
It is already ridiculous that a school can investigate a in-house crime.
It should have been from the beginning only in hands of thai justice authorities.

Yes, may be he is in his free time a tuk tuk driver. You never know.
Perhaps he is in deep debt as many thai teachers are. You never know.
Starts to eat a bit lesser?
There are police sub Lieutenants driving Phuket airport taxis in their free time, covering the taxi meter with a face towel.

Nothing surprise me.

This fool has the same mentality as a retarded tuktuk driver...in fact he looks mentally retarded.  This idiot's childish anger and lack of self control has affected this poor young girls life.  I mean...what kind of adult makes a decision to throw a ceramic mug at a group of children... my god almighty. This animal should never step into a school for the rest of his life...but I will await the ultimate outcome, which I fear will be utterly foolish.

Oh, I forgot to say:.. Priceless photo of that teacher. 55555.

Is there a 'photo of the year' contest in Thailand?  :-)

A minor offence? 
What would be than a major offence committed  by a thai teacher?

Well, a typical case of the butcher tests his own meat, right?
It should not have been a colleagues school panel to investigate.
In Singapore he would have been already locked up (not at least for his own safety) until his court case will take place.
And never would be allowed to enter a school!
Why in Thailand they are so soft with these scum bags?

Only in Thailand would he get a pat on the back of the hand for disfiguring a teenager for the rest of her life. With such a bad temper he should not be teaching. Let's hope the police give him what he desrves
