The 83 years grandfather filed the report at the Sanom Police Station in Surin Province, yesterday.
Mr. Supon told police that the principal called his grandson in for a talk in his room, he ended up giving the young boy several hits behind the head and arms. The beating was so bad that the boy ended up with a bleeding 10-centimeter head injury.
Officials from the Provincial Social Development and Human Security Office and related officials went to inspect the school on 17 February 2020. A meeting took place with the school’s principle to which he admitted to beating and threatening the school boy.
Hitting school boy should never has happened
Mr. Supon said that what happened to his grandson shouldn’t have happened in this day and age. The incident has also made him consider where to move his grandson to another school.
Upon questioning the principle stated that he hit the child because he couldn’t handle the young boy. He said every day the boy would be called to his office, at least 3 times a day. He was angry and told the child that he needed to get beaten to death and to eat the boy’s liver with whiskey.
This scared the school boy who didn’t come to school for 3 days, the Thairesident reports.
Meanwhile, Nattanee Anusasnan an Social Development official stated that such topics are very sensitive. The boy is young and he is still learning. No matter how much he is acting out there should be a better solution than violence.
Parents should understand if the child prefers book study or sports and choose appropriately the school that matches the child. She hopes that the grandfather and the principle can find an agreement. However the case would be dealt with according to law by the police, due to the assault and threats.
