Sanook Thai Caption: Teacher speaks out

 

A kindergarten teacher in Buriram has put a very different angle on a case where it was claimed a five year old child broke his arm at school due to negligence from staff.

 

She said that is not true at all. The child had broken his arm in the holidays. She considered getting a transfer after the criticism which she said was unjustified. Only support from other parents changed her mind.

 

The case surfaced on Facebook when an aunt called Fah of the boy called Tae blamed the school and teacher for what happened to her nephew in Anuban 3 (Kindergarten's third year).

 

She claimed that the child had broken his arm at the Nong Ki district school on June 13th and was in tears after being picked up at the end of the school day.

 

She further said that a basket of goodies and 55,000 baht had been offered but the school wouldn't take full responsibility for the accident. 

 

Sanook went to investigate but found the child and guardians all "away" in another province according to a grandmother called Laem, 72, who said she was not really involved, she just felt sorry for her grandson.

 

But at the school an Anuban 3 teacher called Khru Ning told an entirely different story. 

 

She said that Tae had broken his arm at a playgroup in the holidays in may while running. This had been put in a cast at Nang Rong Hospital.

 

When term started on May 17th the aunt brought the child into school but was told that he couldn't learn because his arm was still in a cast.

 

They again arrived on May 30th worried that Tae would get behind with his learning but were informed again that they should wait for the cast to be removed.

 

On June 13th the child arrived without the cast. That morning the Anuban 2 teacher had a medical emergency requiring hospital treatment and Ning said she had to take care of both Anuban 2 and 3 - a total of 22 children including other kids with medical problems. 

 

After lunch she put the children to bed for their daytime nap and even inquired of Tae about his arm as he had only just had his cast removed. He said he was fine. 

 

Only at the end of the day could it be seen that the arm was broken and was out of shape. 

 

She said that the family demanded 70,000 baht but eventually agreed to ask for only 55,000 baht. A basket of things was arranged for them to apologise but in truth they had done nothing wrong. 

 

Ning admitted that she had a lot of children to cope with that day but she was absolutely not negligent.

 

She said that she was so infuriated with the unwarranted criticism that she wanted to transfer schools but parents of other children had shown her support and convinced her to stay on. 

 

Sanook called the teacher's story in the drama "an entirely different movie reel" to that claimed by the aunt on Facebook.

Why should that be an issue. When I was a kid I remember a couple coming to school with casts. We all wanted to sign it.

Nang Rong Hospital certainly has records on medical record including dates and x-rays. That should solve the query. 

Nobody seems to care about the boy though, its funny hampers and money, money, money and money again. This society has issues, seriously!

The  only thing I can think of is that the school was afraid that he could damage the cast or hurt his arm and then they would be to blame.

 

It seems that Thailand has learned one of the great things about American society.  

 

Sue baby Sue.

 

Waiting to hear about the Thai lady that buys a coffee at Rotten Ronnies puts it between her legs and gets burned.

Can't see the date when he broke it but the cast should not have been removed for 6 weeks. Grandma has $ in her eyes.
