8:51 am
my. make use common and i don't know where you. already. knew what i learned how to read and. were go through a checkpoint. however the ministry admits there are serious issues with the quality of teachers that need to be addressed. when you open. the mythical saw. the mirror we've got all sorts of outside a. doctor . from my head on university has been studying thailand's education system. she believes that the problems are rooted in how teachers have traditionally been trained. violence in a crash. parish learned for example has been kind of tied to conditions
8:52 am
for a long time now and it's official banton 2000 when you're going talk to teachers they do would mentally say orders to practice. because the one good thing was effective way to kind of stop a behavior that is under sire. dr roger out of time is trying to reform teacher training. there are teachers who are radical believe have to change today i just don't know how to test training is. they need a different way of endangered. and they need to develop a community does teach us. to get a teacher's view on training i meet funny dubroca a primary teacher at a government school. and that he had been elaborate me on how well what i had. done when carney will make
8:53 am
a call and be that. polite it all back and he did it well and even honey how. but she says the government offers little support for retraining teachers. they laugh. but i'm not that he may climb up a partner how you young. dr archer ordered high invited ronny deila to join a trial training session you don't need a verse to introduce new teaching methods. teachers as. an authority and naturally stand in front of the classroom. we deliver what students should know. we want to be able to change things dynamic so that students
8:54 am
are so care and students so. active. participants. the training methods developed here focus not on enforcing rules but on empathy with the students. and. teach the. only animal that that might suit the liability don't we whack. my partner who might like to be the one that you know my life. is coming up in court have no money on. including the intelligence on the fact that he says he only had money at my last loud outweighs hike up that you know that they love finding a home i think of one can't you know they love fund it not to get it.
8:55 am
these new teaching methods might have helped the teachers that sort of manage their classrooms without resorting to physical punishment. after a lawyer runaround filed a case for the parents of $26.00 students. court order of the school to pay compensation. but not all of the parents accepted the result. now one couple who could be moved don't. know when they could be called i live life be that is what. i got i got. that one from. these parents say there's a larger payout would send a powerful message to the school. on how my. lonely and that. means.
8:56 am
my level and blank how my own court. t.v. and. and pretend on whose sons were both abused at the school are among those continuing to fight for more compensation. calling me . away. that. i'm a parent myself and every week i take my daughter to school and leave her in the care teachers so far i've had no problems but not every parent in thailand can say the same thing and that's what's worrying. i think the education authorities they
8:57 am
fear their day and willing to really prop and pick the schools to account because they have a lot of power of course they have a lot of money to start this one example but it's the tip of the ice. and problems are exacerbated when private schools like. unlike state control public schools can employ inadequately trained teachers. well we're. going to. use all we have to bring. up with. these promised reforms may not come fast enough for the parents and kids on the front line according to dr to. the thai education system is notoriously slow to change. is a creature and i think you look at the size of the student. you look at the rituals
8:58 am
they have to go through all the national anthem singing them singing and so on and it's almost as though the tide occasion. at the grassroots has really moved forward you know. i don't know. thank. god mainly and. in the meantime chon with and his family have voted with their feet. has started at a new school and they hope that cyrus on group will soon become just a bad memory they continue to pursue their legal case hopefully that shining a light on the abuse their son suffered a powerful message that children should be kept safe in thailand schools.
