A seven-year-old was hit in the head with a stick because she didn’t get her sums right at a school in Pattaya.
Jaja, a P2 child, came home from her Pattaya school sullen and upset. Her mother Nutchanart, 26, took her to hospital when black eyes and swelling appeared on her daughter.
Then she made a police report.
The little girl’s grandmother was given a verbal apology from the teacher concerned.
It emerged that the child was hit because she was slow at math.
Now the school director – who said they had been away from the school – has set up a committee of inquiry and promised justice in the matter.
This followed a backlash on social media when pictures of the child were posted and comments were made on Facebook.
The family have said they may prosecute the teacher concerned
