Minister of Education, Mr Natthaphon Thepsuwan has said that schools do not have the right to demand students wear face masks that match the school uniform. He made it clear today that the colours on the face masks worn by students are not important.
Natthaphon said “Students are free to choose their own face masks as the only purpose of the masks are to prevent the spread of COVID 19”
He has asked that this message is spread to all students, teachers and educational personnel.
The Minister of Education has made it clear that he won’t take any nonsense from schools regarding this matter and has encouraged parents and students to contact his office and report any educational institute that does not comply with this rule.
