Ideas in place to reverse decline in Thai education

To provide quality education you must have quality teachers.  Today's teachers are the product of a deteriorated education system so it is a real dilemma.  Until the government realizes they need to invest mega-bahts to hire top quality education professionals not someone who has gone through their system where no failures are permitted.  Students must be made to realize that to get ahead in this world you have to earn that right - not be pushed into the next level - they must earn the right to advance!

It took 3 years, but my uni has got 3 native English teachers, all well educated with bachelors or master degrees with a total of 25 years experience between us. All with my assistance, I should say. All signed contracts with a promise of a 5% salary increase each year.

 

Then comes the renewal time and lo and behold, salary increases are pulled. This was all done with the agreement of all deans of faculty and only told to us recently, so no chance to find another job in time, as the semester has already begun in the schools. 

 

All 3 lecturers now totally demotivated and that will pass on to the students, deliberate or not. When we all give our notice next year, just imagine their little faces asking, 'but, but ..... why are you leaving?'

 

All the same from primary, to secondary and then university level. They poke and poke until they mess everything up. There is absolutely no learning curve with them. Amazing Thailand indeed!

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for an improvement. 

Am trying to gently sway Mrs Djayz to take our kid back to Europe where he at least has a chance of actually learning something. 

Good luck. Took me years of steady pushing to make mine see the light, even when she already had a German step-dad growing up. The Thainess indoctrination is just that powerful.

As long as they can’t freely speak their mind and are forced to kowtow and grovel, they won’t get anywhere.

Bang on. It is just an indoctrination into conformism and brainwashing.

home schooling by whom? the parents? parents are uneducated how can they teach the kids something

We homeschool. 1 to 2 hours a day are enough, can you imagine. The rest of the time is play time, reading, watching documentaries and going to the park and beach.

The Thai education system is nothing but a farce to pretend it gives students an education. They have no knowledge of the world, history nor ability to think and analyse.

 

The average university graduate wouldnt pass a year 10 exam in a western high school.

The West is just as bad.

I don't think they want the people educated, because if they educate them properly, it won't be long before they lose their position of power.

I don't see that happening in the west. Education seems sound enough in most western countries, but idiots still vote again and again for people who outright lie to them again and again, on both sides of the fence. Abetted by media that they also believe without question.

Seems pretty much like Thailand in that regard. 

The majority already don't want the government they didn't vote for here, just like the popular vote in the US was finagled.

Allow the children to practise critical thinking rather than the current system of only listening.

This subject has been posted to death many times over.  Nobody gives a toss except the foreigners, who are powerless to interfere with Thainess.

 

Nothing will change for the better in Thai education until a completely new generation with a completely different mindset are bred into society.  Sadly, that will never happen until snow falls on Bangkok every day of the year.

Get rid of the antiquated heads in the schools who don't even have a bachelor's in education. In the West (in my country) one cannot access master's and Phd's in education if one does not have a bachelor's in education. Problem in Thailand, and many other countries, is that many people get a master's Phd and they don't even have the basics of education.

 

I worked with many heads who had master's in education and did not even know the basic theories. 

 

Nothing will change if the people at the top are not replaced with adequately qualified people.
