Hello, all. Can anyone give me the latest address of the Thailand blacklist of bad schools?
I've got a baaadddd one to add.
Welshman, what's up? Back me up on my addition to the blacklist, buddy!

I think there used to be a site like TEFLwatch.org or something, where they used to burn on school cause a few white boys cried to them... not sure, never checked it out myself. You can see if it is out on the interweb or not.
There's a sticky in the staffroom for teflwatch.org

teflwatch.org it is - pretty good these days, not half so much silly unsubstantiated whinging as there used to be
Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....
It still has too many headcases
That's because there are any number of headcases working TEFL in Thailand.Originally Posted by mrsquirrel

Well Quirrel, there's you and I for a start!
Hey, guys. Thanks a bunch. I appreciate the hot tips. I'll go to that TEFLwatch.org site and post what needs to be posted.
Like I said in my post, ANY number. Wanna borrow me specs?Originally Posted by mrsquirrel
Any chance of an estimation.
I love this thread!
My personal favourite highlight
Damn right bitches!110,000 baht a month minimum
Visas PAID by school
Housing PAID by school
Utilities PAID by school
Plane tickets PAID by school
Anything less is "No Damn Way" when it comes to Thailand.
Do you have coke?
Hey, so what's that TEFL watch all about now? It's just got ads and a picture of a copper sink. There aren't any posts related to teaching. You can still look at old posts by typing in the name of the school and...Hall of Shame.
Presumably you can add to these too.
Shame it's closed really, as BKK and I'm guessing the rest of Thailand has it's fair share of put upon teachers. Any chance of ajarn doing some kind of offshoot? I guess anybody could set up a new one, but nobody wants to get sued.

As far as Ajarn doing something like that now, we do offer a fairly limited albeit heavily moderated subforum called School Talk which gives limited scope for feedback on schools, but there's no way we'd allow the libellous excesses of TEFL Watch on here....we're more lenient than we used to be though.

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.
