Thai pupils protest over haircut humiliations

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Thai school pupils, fed up of draconian classroom laws that dictate even the length of their hair, have joined the anti-government protests that have been sweeping through the Southeast Asian nation.

The current protests’ roots lie in elections last year that many believe were unfairly weighted to ensure victory for Prayuth Chan-ocha, the former general who seized power in a military coup in 2014.  

The silencing of the younger generation has become a major complaint among activists, who have been demonstrating for weeks.

Videos of girls having their cut aggressively cut in front of their peers have gone viral, prompting younger teenagers to take to the streets.

Yep, one day they grow their hair an inch longer, the next they are snorting cocaine and setting fire to bibles.  Hair growing is, obviously, a gateway drug and leads straight to Satanism..

No more or less hilarious than convents or Catholic school... 

Quote

Almost all schoolchildren in Thailand attend either public schools or those run by Buddhist monasteries. The Thai literacy rate is one of the highest in South-East Asia at about 90%.

Public schools are free for Thai citizens or those who were born in Thailand, and have one Thai parent. Expatriate children must pay fees when attending a public school, although the fees for public schools are usually cheaper than those of international schools. You need your child's birth certificate and the Tabien Baan (your house registration document) to enrol your child in a public school.

Although there are some public schools where over 50% of classes are conducted in English, most expatriates send their children to internationals school due to the smaller class sizes and less learning by rote.

The point being your use of the 'Slippery Slope' (or 'Thin End of the Wedge') logical fallacy?

Not a logical fallacy, fact, I've lived through it.
