Mae Rim parents file complaint against school
Deputy Governor Navin Sintusa-ard receives
the complaint from parents about excessive fees at the Baan Rim Tai
school in Mae Rim.
Parents of students at the Baan Rim Tai School in Mae Rim met
with Governor Suriya Prasatbuntitya on June 2, 2015 to file a formal
complaint against the school’s head for excessive fees. The parents
allege that the head of the school is charging fees above and beyond
those allowed by the government.
The primary school students qualify under the government’s law requiring
free basic education for students to the age of 15 less fees of 700 baht
per year. However, the parents claim that Mr. Sayan Kanthiya began
charging fees of 2,500 baht three years ago when he started as the new
school principal. Those fees then rose to 3,100 baht the second year and
finally to 3,100 baht the third year. The parents claimed that Mr. Sayan
would not allow students to attend classes if their parents did not pay
the extras fees on time causing great hardship for low income families.
Deputy Governor Navin Sintusa-ard received the complaint on behalf of
the Governor and promised parents that the relevant authorities would
investigate the matter.
Fire strikes Waroros Market again
Fire broke out at Waroros Market on
June 5, 2015, gutting three buildings and damaging two others.
It took firefighters over two hours to put out the blaze that
was fueled by fabric and clothing stored in the building.
The second fire in a month has struck Waroros Market,
starting in the CM Plaza shop before spreading to four
neighboring shops, gutting two of them. Witnesses said that the
fire started in the second floor of a fabric and clothes shop
and spread quickly at around 5 p.m. on Friday June 5 after the
shop owner had closed for the day.
Firefighters rushed to the scene but had difficulty reaching the
blaze because of nearby shop owners frantically trying to clear
their stores of stock before the fire spread. It took
firefighters over two hours to put out the fire that ended up
spreading to four nearby shops, gutting Karachi and Bangkok
Bazaar shops next door.
Mayor Tussanai Buranupakorn and Deputy Governor Navin
Sintusa-ard both came to check the situation and monitor
progress on putting out the fires. This is the second such fire
to hit the 100 year old market in a month, the previous fire
occurred in a religious supplies warehouse on May 17, 2015.
Forensic specialists that investigated the scene after the fire
suspect it may have been caused by an electrical short circuit.
Preliminary damages were set at 20 million baht but have since
been estimated at much higher.
