The Phuket Provincial Educational Office is investigating over a school director allegedly assaulting an 8-year-old student.
Our previous stories:
Ms. Patchalee Chaoponlagrang, the Phuket Provincial Educational Office director told the Phuket Express, “The school director told us it is not true. He did not assault the boy.”
“The boy is a special child (Children with special developmental needs and/or disabilities). He normally does not enter classes and he likes to stay in teacher rooms.”
“On that day, the student in question went into the director of the school’s room while the school director was working in there. He played in the room for five minutes before going out. The room is next to other rooms where staffers and teachers were present. They did not hear any sound or cries from any potential assault. He bought some water from a teacher at a shop in the school and no wounds were present.” Patchalee stated.
“However, we are continuing the investigation.” Patchalee concluded.
The name of the school and director have been withheld by Phuket law enforcement pending the investigation.
