An English teacher caused a minor stir this morning when he criticised a Bangkok school over its poor grammar, which, he said, was "poor".
Moys Kenwwod, originally from Hull in East Yorkshire, spotted the grammatical gaffe outside the Samsen Witthayalai school on Rama 6 Road in Bangkok as the number 67 bus on which he was travelling passed the much-vaunted 'centre of excellence'.
He told me:
"A huge tablet of marble near the school gate claims that "parents and teacher's" work together to give the best possible education to the children, but not, apparently, to place apostrophes correctly. I'm disgusted; it's very poor."
A spokesman for the school said:
"We are not just a school. We are also a money-making enterprise, like most other schools in Thailand. In fact, on balance, I would have to say that we are the latter rather than the former."
