Parents unhappy about schools being closed

The Education Ministry has received complaints from parents that some schools in the South closed down without explanation.

The closures are believed to be linked to the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), which is currently occupying several major intersections in Bangkok in its challenge to the government.

The PDRC movement has support in the South.

Caretaker Education Minister Chaturon Chaisang yesterday threatened to launch a probe into why the schools had shut down.
