BANGKOK 6 October, 2011 (NNT) – The Education Ministry of Thailand has thought up a new approach to stop decades-long brawls among vocational students.
The Education Ministry and related agencies, including the Basic Education Commission Office, the Vocational Education Commission Office and the Private Education Commission Office will jointly introduce a campaign aimed at settling long running conflicts between rival schools and promoting understanding and harmony among problematic students.
The Public Health Ministry will also cooperate in the scheme by assigning psychologists to offer counseling to students.
Although the Education Ministry has planned to adopt a soft approach in the first place, it is ready to get tough with students whose behavior is beyond remedy. Permanent closure will imposed on schools that have done nothing to students repeatedly involved in brawls. Board members of the schools will be held accountable. Schools having records of violent students will be told to participate in the campaign.
