Pramote Potiphol identifies as transgender. However, teaching at a public school she must follow the polices set forth by the government. Since she was born as a male, this includes keeping her hair short. For many transgender, long hair is a large part of their identity. Current policy therefore discourages many candidates from wanting to enter this field.
