    Re: Arbitration

    What .. dispute resolution being a non-binding form of arbitration?

    To save me from having to google it, do tell what the difference is. Please.

    I'd hazard a guess that someone's spotted a gap in the market for a TEFL Watch alternative, that doesn't involve having to rely soley on subjective opinions as the basis for information and dispute resolution.

    Re: Arbitration

    And they've found a Thai lawyer or law firm brave enough to take on the role of arbritrator.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    Re: Arbitration

    I don't see anything in the OP to suggest this is only for Thailand, Umbuku and I'm willing to bet that at this point there isn't a Thai firm attached to it.

    Oh, great ESLJUDGE, please enlighten us a tad more as to the nuts and bolts of how you plan to do this in the Land of Smiles? And are you doing this elsewhere?

    I think almost all of the posters in this thread have raised legitimate questions. If you can satisfy us then I can see some professionals stepping up to help with the process. But without that...it's just another EFL pipe dream.

    Re: Arbitration

    Arbitration just won't work in Thailand cos schools don't give a damn. I wish people in the EFL world would fix the big problem at source which is the EFL method of teaching in South East Asia does not work. How can students learn English when their whole curriculum is based around memorising. Lets start from the beginning. Teach Pratom kids how to read, open their eyes through books and computers. Teach them at the level they really are and challenge them to think. I'm tired of all these companies who want to make a quick buck but do not provide the resources for actual effective learning to happen.

    Re: Arbitration

    Some form of teachers' collective - or resort to some form of union - is something that has been discussed since I first lived and worked here in 1990. To the best of my knowledge, even such a simple concept as that has not taken. Why would this work?

    At the end of the day, teachers are as bad as Admin. It's self-preservation. Look out for Number 1 first. If things go well, let's have fun. If not, you're on your own.

    It may be harsh, it may be blunt, but so far, in my experience, it's held true. Don't believe me, look around the staff room next time you're in there. Look in each person's eye and ask yourself "If the shit hit the fan, would that person stand by me?" Bet you can count the "yes" answers on one hand.

    As for this arbitration issue, I'd rather take my chances with the Ministry of Labor.

    Re: Arbitration

    Just re-read the OP - clearly it's not a Thailand specific thing at all. Looks like a world thing and also looks like we are wasting time posting here because I don't expect the OP has ever read ajarn before and maybe never will again!

    Does that make it spam
