The Office of the Basic Education Commission will spend Bt208.23 million to repair and renovate the residences of public school teachers around the country, the office’s chief said.

 

Dr Suthep Chitayawong, secretary general of the Office of the Basic Education Office, said the office has surveyed official residences of public schools under the office as ordered by the Education Minister Nataphol Teepsuwan and found that 1,998 residences need to be renovated.

 

The education minister wants the office to repair and rebuild all teachers’ residences that have outside toilets to make them safer and more convenient. 

 

Suthep said the renovations will be carried out in two phases. In the first phase, 1,370 residences will be repaired at a cost of Bt147.78 million and the remaining 682 in the second phase at a further cost of Bt60.45 million.

seems it might pay you to review the working arrangements for many Thai teachers - that's unless your fully upto date.

They are already hopelessly in debt financing their cars, motorcycles and iPhones and lifestyles!

And why buy a house when you might be punted-off somewhere else at short notice?

The youngest i have heard of is 22-23 once they've finished their uni courses and graduated. Starting salaries now for teachers with uni grads are 15k, even in the provinces.

When i wrote this i was thinking about government workers in general, and didn't keep in mind that this news was talking exclusively about teachers.

Teachers are usually of course not younger than 22 when they start work.

The university teachers with masters were starting at 15,000 at the unis I worked at previously. No idea about high schools or big city schools but in our small primary school out in the sticks some teachers are as low as 7500. No idea how they do it.

That's nothing! Junta leader Prayut spent billions of baht on homes for his army of Public Relations staff all over Thailand in the lead up to his Thai Niyom vote buying cash splurge. He had them everywhere to make sure he got full media coverage.

Sorry, can't find the link now but I am sure it was a TVN news item.

Teachers are a very low level job here and are not appreciated as compared to most western countries.

I applaud anything they can do to help them.

Lets not forget the brand new housing estate on the side of the Soi Dao mountain up in Chiang Mai for the judiciary.  ( I think I remembered all that correctly, someone will let me know if I goofed up) 🙂
