School In Thailand

Recommended Posts

As many of you are aware my Ex is a Lecturer in a Government university in Ratchaburi,this week some of her student teachers are doing work experience as part of their Masters Degree in Technology of teaching at local Ratchaburi Government schools,the Viper(MyEx)has to go around each school and asses the Student teachers and grade their teaching ability.

She has sent me a few pictures and what struck me was,obviously it's a far cry from Western modern schools, but none the less it looks more like an education facility than i expected,i had in my mind that all the kids would be dressed in rags and sitting on the floor playing building sand castles in the sand pit,instead what i can see is they are dressed in smart uniforms and all look well kept and well fed,obviously what they are being taught is any ones guess.

Not quite what I imagined a 3rd world Government school in the provinces would be like.

Used to amaze me seeing these immaculately turned out kids stepping out of a run down shack every morning heading off to school.

They've got fcuk all but still take a pride in cleanliness.

Thais are big on uniforms, even in rural schools.

Deffinitly in rural schools.

At the local school near my village, all the young whipper-snappers have coloured uniforms for different days of the week, tables and chairs in the rooms, pictures and charts on the walls, everything you would of expected in a primary school back here in the UK. The standard of schooling is on the way up in Thailand.

From what I have seen, the kids have adequate facilities for learning.

To improve themselves, the students need to be able to question the teachers, unfortunately that still isn't the case with Thai run schools.

agreed scotty

I have spent a few days sitting in English classes at our local primary school . kids can`t ask the teacher anything because he doesn`t speak English

he gives his grade seven students homework that has been downloaded from fourth year high school in both maths and English . I tried to ask why he did this and got nowhere as my thai was as bad as his English

feel sorry for the kids

I would have expected the teacher to be familiar with the subject they're teaching, but this isn't always the case in the LOS.

Not every school in Thailand is the same. There are some gem's of teachers out there. so dont write them all off just yet.

When you've worked alongside engineers who don't know some of the basics of their own discipline, it's difficult not to worry about the education system.
