…and the school has since been forced to apologise.

A teacher in Chiang Rai asked students to hand over passwords to their social media accounts and phones. But many have criticised the teacher saying it overstepped privacy boundaries. The school has since apologised and imposed stricter rules.

The teacher gave students a questionnaire, asking them to fill out information about multiple social media accounts, their phone password, internet expenses and the phone brands and models. It’s unclear why the teacher wanted the information. A photo of the inquiry form was shared on social media and many people online agreed the move violated students’ privacy, big time!

The Chiang Rai Municipality 6 School wrote a letter apologising for the teachers actions, saying it was inappropriate and breached privacy guidelines. From now on, the school is requiring all inquiries regarding personal information to be vetted by school administrators first.

“We will order every employee of the school to ask permission from the executives if they are doing any questionnaire that involves personal information.”
