So how many "professional establishments" are there in Thailand?Originally Posted by munkijism
And "professional" by who's criteria?
I have worked at some decent places, and have friends that have done the same. We would describe these as "professional"...but I am yet to encounter a school (other than internationals) that checks qualifications...
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
C'mon mate, its impossible to know that off hand, there are a few I'm sure.Originally Posted by torbek
I think professional by having some sorts of standards and measures. By not employing anyone just coz their white would be a good start. With regards to recruitment meeting the expectations of the MOE and checking paperwork would be a start.Originally Posted by torbek
So just the three establishments, then?Originally Posted by munkijism
Professional, now there's a laugh.
As almost every educational establishment in Thailand is here to turn a quick buck, where are the professional ones?
IMO the most professional, International Schools aside, would have to be the government EP's, just like the one I work on
Most of the other, private, bilingual/ep's are just money making factories.
That's a bit of a stretch. There are many, many schools that require the proper qualifications that aren't "international".Originally Posted by torbek
Require them?Originally Posted by OhhhYouKnow
Most wouldn't know where to begin (and that is not a shot at them...it's simply not that easy for a Thai to verify degrees), even if they were so inclined...
We'll just agree to disagree. My school is not international and they check all of this for their foreign hires. I just can't believe we're alone.
Maybe your school is one of the three?Originally Posted by OhhhYouKnow
Seriously, though...how do they go about checking the degrees?
I doubt other schools do it this way, but at mine, they get the latest foreign do-gooder to google the school in question. If the do-gooder deems it legit, the school sends the application on to the MoE. If not, the school challenges the degree and offers a "part-time" position. Part-time means, lower salary, no benis, no wp, no visa, no tl, and you're the first in line to get the boot when they find someone to replace you. Never mind the year-end bonus--they'll never last that long. I'm not kidding about this.Originally Posted by torbek
Let's hope the MOE are more scientific in their approach - otherwise every teacher here need worry!Originally Posted by crew
Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....

Don't get me wrong - I don't want a 'serious' board but I'd like posts to be either genuinely amusing, informative and/ or thought provoking.

It seems that schools like yours are the problem here.
most degrees in the lsat few years can be verified online. its people who graduated years ago that haev difficulties. This is particuarly pertinent in the Uk where many of the old polys ceased to exist in the late 80s making it impossible to track your degree
