    The immigration office in SriRacha has been revamped with all new computers.
    They had a uni student sitting there going through stacks of files of people with visas.
    She was taking paperwork out, looking at it, then checking on the computer. I couldn't see if it was degrees, but it sure looked like it. That was October I think. But hell, she could have been checking on something completely different.

    Clear your route to the roof. Do some practice runs.
    Miles and miles to go before I sleep...

    Wouldn't they be doing that at the MOE rather than an immi office?

    We had an applicant at Rajabottom who I had a feeling was a scam. I emailed his alum society and got an instant reply saying there were no ***** ******s on the list.

    I think it's because it seems the Thais amazingly have their act together on this one AO instead of their usual Keystone Cops routine. I wonder when the fuss will die down and it's business as usual in LOS. I'll give it a couple of months max.

    I reckon. Scare the teachers and, just as importantly, the schools. The private bilingual schools make millions and millions for their owners year on year. Why would the government protect them, why wouldn't they go after them? These schools charge high enough fees that they should be recruiting/paying teachers to almost match international school standards - the government are so right to try and enforce some standards, if I were a Thai citizen I'd demand it.

    It seems there is a fancy pink school charging the earth in nearly every soi these days, most of them run by unscrupulous business people, mega-rich and without a second thought for their kids. It's hardly surprising that they run roughshod over teachers!
    Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....

    Really, they are.

    That is why their url is: http://www.imm.police.go.th/nov2004/en/base.php

    Check in with us again when you are feeling better.
    That's the stupidest thing i've ever heard.

    There's detention at the airport too. Does that make them the police? Whatever... It's off the subject... You're an idiot.

    And NO, there's no jail at Imm. Obviously they have to put illegal immigrants somewhere while they are being "processed".

    Sorry champ.

    Immigration in Thailand is a division of the police...

    Fact.
    Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

    Fact.
    So the Immigration Police Bureau and the THai Royal Police are the same thing? Hmmm. I thought I recognised that guy that gave me a traffic ticket the other day. He's the guy that does my 90 day.

    I know... They are a part , but they are not the police...

    sorry jasper but this kind of says there's only good schools in Thailand, what about the Nontaburi projects? Or the thousands of government schools whos students come from poorer backgrounds, where the teachers are doing nothing other than basic conversation?

    As i've said before, they need a tear system to allow all teachers to be leagal, top end teachers have all the qualifications and earn the money they deserve. My daughter will go to school in about 5 years and i want her to be taught by a proper teacher with the right qualifications. this will be something i would be willing to pay for.

    on the other end of the scale you would have conversation teachers, the same type who work in the government schools and conversation schools. They should have the minimum of a TEFL cert or similar and should be given TLs based on employability, one would hope that the ADs in conversation schools are sharp enough to employ their own staff, if not they shouldn't be doing the Ads job.

    do you think the mentality of the Thai english teachers in government schools is going to change just because a teacher with a PGCE or what ever it is, is working as a teacher with them? trying to change their syllabus, telling them how poor their own english is?
    no, it isn't.
    the top and bottom of it is thailand needs the unqualified teachers to fill the majority of teaching positions because proper teachers won't do the work.
    Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.

    Re: More Raids on Schools? - Jan '07

    kind of funny, a manager at my school interviewed someone with a certificate in personal training and a tesol for the position of pe and health teacher. When I suggested that he might want to run it by Thai admins in the know about the new rules, I got the "you're an idiot, there are no new rules" look.

    Out here in the sticks, no degree is needed.
    Are you actually reading this? Do you think I care?
