A new punishment in the Thai teacher's armory - shaming the kids on social media!

Thai social media was alive with positive comment and laughter as a Korat teacher decided on a modern version of shaming naughty students into better behavior.

 

The teacher had two M3 (Year 10 in the British system) students stand in a small square and hug each other - then peck each other on the cheek.

 

And the unusual punishment for the teenage boys seems to have done the trick -  Daily News online reported that the boys' behavior has improved.

 

 

Tha Sala Prasit Suksa assistant director Songserm Tengaksorn told the Thai news media that the boys were misbehaving during last Thursday's "Teachers' Day" celebrations.

 

Teachers' Day is observed in almost every school in Thailand and is a solemn occasion when children are supposed to be on their best behavior as they pay respects to their school mistresses and masters.

 

It was likely that all their friends saw their humiliation - the story was shared 19,000 times and viewed by a staggering 2.5 million Thais.

 

Most of those thought it was funny and a good idea to get children to behave, reported Daily News.
