The allegations were first made on Twitter by a user named Red Skull, who claimed that a student had posted evidence of a teacher collecting 200 baht from each student in exchange for grades. The teacher initially gave all the students a grade of zero before soliciting the payment and then abruptly reduced the amount from 400 baht to 200 baht.
