Chiang Mai teacher dismissed over student lunch programme mismanagement


Recommended Posts


Chaiyot Suktor, a senior professional level teacher (K3) at Yangpao School in Omkoi, Chiang Mai, has been dismissed from the civil service following allegations of corruption by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).

Chaiyot, identified as the fourth accused, is allegedly guilty of criminal misconduct as an official, accused of performing or neglecting duties without authority.


The case centres around Chaiyot, who served on the student lunch inspection committee and was implicated by a former school administrator. Chaiyot was accused of mismanaging the student lunch programme, redirecting food intended for kindergarten and primary students to secondary students as well, due to the majority of them being residential students from poor families.

Today, December 7, Surasak Panchareonwongkun, Deputy Minister of Education, commented on the case, expressing sympathy for Chaiyot who was implicated by the NACC. The Office of Basic Education Commission (OBEC) is currently examining the case, as the funds were allegedly misused to feed secondary students with a primary school lunch budget, which was done for the students’ benefit.
