The other day I read some documents announcing the maximum salaries for foreign teachers working in government primary and secondary formal education schools. I'm not sure whether this is a measure issued by the Educational Service Area of The Ministry of Education in my province or that this applies to all government primary and secondary formal education schools in Thailand.
The maximum salaries are:
- 30,000 THB for primary schools
- 35,000 THB for secondary schools
It doesn't mean that foreign teachers in government schools can't earn more than the maximum salary but the excess will be off-employment contract and funded by other sources.
Have you heard about this?
I heard rumors of that last year.
Is there a mention of the length of contracts?
It used to be 10 months, but now 8 months seems to be the norm!
I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.
They don't just provide teachers though. They actually run the entire English Program. They take care of everything, curriculum to textbooks to staff.
That's what I meant by an agency "of sorts" Not an employment agency. A .... ? what agency?
I have two contracts. One contract has the salary allowed and the second contract has my actual salary.

Which one will they rip up when the shit hits the fan?
The race to the bottom, is just like the thais race to do the least, atleast ime
If they wanted to, they could increase the housing allowance.
And, as far as I am concerned, 9.5 month contracts are not feasible for most teachers, unless they have outside income.
A family of two or three can't realistically survive on 30,000 B / month, never mind if you have 2.5 months without income.
That is one of the many reasons why schools can't retain decent teachers.
Hmm... I'm still getting a housing allowance.
