    Yeah right. It's the rich private schools that are the biggest offenders here. I know the schools that were raided.

    Yeah, it does seem to be the rich private bilingual schools that were affected primarily here. They have been making buckets of cash over the last few years, most use "illegal" teachers where they have to - if it's a toss-up between turning away paying students or putting an under-qualified teacher in front of the class, then "any teacher will do!"
    Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....

    It seems like the people they were puling in last week had TLs and WPs, or at least had at some time in the past and were happily working away at a school who told them to use fake docs. Doesn't look like it was the school who shopped 'em mate!
    No I meant, do nothing about checking people out.
    I think they pay a visit to the KhaoSan rd. people once in a while and keep a list of their customers. Give me the list or I close you down. It's happened many times before. Last raid to the KSR guys they ceased a bunch of names of customers and went to seek them out. I think that's why it takes a while to track everyone down.
    It's like buying fake software at Pantip. last time I saw a cop buying fake DVDs. It's a big game. If the farangs are stupid enough to go to KSR to get fake degrees they have to know they'll get caught, unless they are planning to teach for a little bit and then leave.

    They should have never let these counterfeit stalls exist in the first place. Sure, one can get fake documents several ways, but having these present and easily accesible is inviting trouble. In short, TIT.

    So, this may give them a leg to stand on, no?


    Also, regarding schools out in the sticks, I predict they will start making it to these schools within the next 6 months since it will take some time to get the ball rolling.

    Exactly. Same game going on at Pantip. There has to be millions and millions of dollars in counterfit software there. I've bought software for 10 dollars that retails for 4,000 dollars. As I said before, it's all a big game. The KSR guys get money out of the fake stuff they make, once in a while the police shakes them down and goes after a few farangs and that way Imm./ MoE and police all look like they are trying to "fix" the situation in Thailand, and at the same time, letting the KSR people stay and get the farangs money. It works out for everyone, except the farang. As usual.

    Oh, I only meant the KSR situation.

    I LOVE PANTIP! Fake software rules!

    I'm not sure the Thai police are that intelligent. Sure they shake down the KSR people, but then use that information to catch farang who obtained wps with fakes degrees (this is the responsibility of ministries of immigration, education and/or labour)? Not so sure.

    Seems pretty certain that that is what's happened though this time. It seems they are better organised than people thought!

    Private schools in Thailand will never improve until they stop relying on government authorities to give them hiring and curriculum standards and start considering it their own responsibility to their customers, the students and their families, to maintain standards of excellence.

    Re: More Raids on Schools? - Jan '07

    I'm wondering when raids are going to hit ChiangMai.
    My school will not employ a single part time teacher for fear of repurcussions, the staff are all legitimised, yet I would warrant that 80% of teachers in the city are illegal, maybe more.
    Nearly every language school in the city employs only part time members of staff.
    You would hardly need to check KSR hard drives, don't need a degree to work illegally.
