Chukiat Wisetsena, director of the Secondary Educational Service Area Office 31, said Paithoon Klaengkratok, 58, has been moved to office duties.

Mr Paithoon is a physical education teacher at Chokchai Samakkee School in Chok Chai district.

The transfer came after Pranee Jodsanthia, 48, accompanied by her daughter, Narudee, who suffered facial feature distortion after Mr Paithoon allegedly threw a mug at her, brought the issue to the media’s attention.

A disciplinary panel against the teacher was under way yesterday (Sept 14). A result is expected within seven days.

Mr Chukiat said an adviser to a class which Narudee, a Mathayom 5 student, attends and four other classmates who witnessed the incident testified to the panel yesterday.

Student Somsak Kakrathok said Mr Paithoon threw a ceramic mug at Narudee and other students. The teacher became angry when students stood up to avoid sunlight during an outdoor class on Aug 8. The mug missed other students and hit Narudee’s face.

Provincial justice chief Pichianpatana Intarapanich is supervising the probe to ensure fairness, Mr Chukiat added.

Narudee was taken by Pavena Foundation for Children and Women chairwoman Pavena Hongsakula to Yanhee Hospital in Bangkok for an examination yesterday.

Speaking at a press briefing at the hospital, its CEO Supot Sumritvanitcha said Narudee’s muscles on the left side of her face were unresponsive due to a nerve injury caused by an object hitting the base of her left ear.

Dr Supot said Ms Narudee was also unable to close her left eyelid which could lead to eye irritation, inflammation and blindness without proper treatment.

He described Narudee’s conditions as “severe”.

However, further medical tests would determine whether facial nerves were inflamed or damaged, he added.

The attack left some swelling above her left eyebrow. After Ms Narudee went home, she was unable to close her mouth and left eye, which later developed into facial distortion.

Ms Narudee and her mother lodged a complaint with Chok Chai Police on Aug 9. Later they decided to seek help from the media after the police investigation failed to make headway.

Ms Pranee said the school gave them B40,000 to help pay for her daughter’s treatment.

The teacher also offered to pay B80,000 of his own money for damages.

However, the family declined the teacher’s offer, saying a hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima where the girl was treated initially estimated the medical cost at B300,000.

Chokchai Samakkee School director Niphon Pakdeekaew insisted the school has consistently provided assistance including medical expenses for the student.

The issue reached the media after the family’s negotiations with Mr Paithoon over the medical payment failed on Monday (Sept 12), Mr Niphon said.

Kurt...as usual no facts but silly innuendo. Firstly the director of the school cannot be the end-person-responsible. 
2. Medical treatment is being offered free by Yanhee Hospital in Bangkok.
3. the school and the teacher do not have to fork up for all medical bills. Go and find out who is. 
4. now you are reducing yourself to level of a criminal by exacting revenge through assault. Not exactly what one would expect in a civilised society, but then again it is you who advocates caning juveniles so it is no surprise. 
5. the teacher has been charged by police with physical assault causing injury. There would appear to be some doubt of the exact circumstances of what occurred given the legal definition of assault, but from your usual rambling that would not concern you.

The director of the school is the end-person-responsible.
If the teacher did not commit his crime, there was now no medical bill of 300,000 thb on the table.
The school and the teacher have to fork up for all medical bills. Simple and clear.

If not, they both have to be lucky that it happened not to my daughter.
I and friends would go after them. Bunch of school office criminals.

And this teacher still walks around freely? if I was the father he would be more safe in a prison cell now.
Hope some people teach him a lesson soon. With a hammer. he may choose, left or right hand. That is reasonable, not?

Parents should be more protective about their children, not take any abuse of teachers.

Regularey we read about thai teachers who seems that not only teaching is their job, but practice abusing violence to kids in their classes.
Sometimes damaging kids for life. 

Such 'teachers' should face court, go prison, and not allowed to be a teacher anymore.
Thai parents should not accept criminal misbehavior towards their children by idiots who are called 'teacher'.
We read it over and over.

If a thai teacher touch my kids I will give the thai police chance to take proper legal action.
If the thai police not do that, I and friends will have a 'talk' with such a teaching criminal.
Hands off other peoples children!

Here again a criminal teacher not arrested.
