A dedicated teacher has died after he refused further hospital treatment for his illness because he was worried his students would fall behind in their studies as the exams approached if he was not there to help them. 

Pichai Phanjiriyakul, 54, a teacher at the Agricultural and Technology College in Buri Ram province, forced his doctor to sign his discharge papers so that he could return to classes and teach his students.

He was worried that his students would fall behind with the examinations approaching, according to his wife, Phosit Phanjiriyakul.
