A Rayong mother on Tuesday filed a complaint with police, alleging that a teacher had beaten her son with a metal ruler because he could not catch up with friends in reading in class.
Teacher beat son: The 24-year-old mother, Thassanee (surname withheld), showed police her son’s bruised right shoulder during a class after the lunch break.
She alleged that her son’s class master at a school in Rayong’s Muang district used a metal ruler to hit the boy on his face, arms, body and shoulder.
The shoulder was the most injured as the ruler hit a bone, she said.
The mother claimed that the teacher admitted punishing the boy.
