    Education and the fine art of hairdressing

    11yr-old of the family home from school today with a new 'look'

    One of the teachers took it upon herself to cut all the girls' hair that did not meet regulations.

    No 'note to parents' or even a warning to the children last week, if they'd known it could easily have been done over the 4-day weekend just over. No, just out with the scissors and a very rough cut.

    Oh well. Beats teaching them I suppose. Unsure what important lesson was missed for this exercise.

    The pic of Edmund Blackadder made her laugh though

    My son is always getting demerit points for his hair being longer than school regulation length. He has never had it cut at school though. The wife just gives him a trim which is good enough for a couple of weeks before he gets his next demerit point.

    He wants to get a mohican haircut for the school holidays

    A bit archaic and frustrating

    Yeah, rather than teach - as supposedly that is their job - worry about some longish hair that has absolutely no bearing on how the kid learns... Fuck me what a stupid scenario.

    Have seen this twice in my time hear and its always dumbfounding.

    E. G.

    PS is it true that teachers college is the easiest to enter. i.e. the bottom rung of higher education?

    They must be clones, so damn silly. Hundred year old uniforms and bobbed hair. My kids did it for a year. But then got a waiver as their hair is wavy so they can keep it in a pony tail. If they ever cut my kids hair I would go the next day and cut the hair of the so called barber. All this kind of crap is adding up. I would say I have a better than 50% chance of leaving here on a one way ticket in October.

    I would go alone.

    I can only compare to New Zealand/Australia - I would say that a teacher there who decided to become 'barber for a day' would be in all sorts of trouble with the school/education dept, and likely a silly complaint to the police (assault?).

    Cost 20 baht for hairdresser to tidy up the ragged ends.
