At the government school here I teach, students are required to pay for extra services that is provided. Included is a service charge for providing a native language teacher.

I would think it should be the responsibility of the ministry of Education to provide the wages of the foreign teachers. Then it might be possible to have native language teachers at all government schools.

If other schools are also collecting fees,then only schools with extra money are in a position to hire.
Poorer schools are on their own. Since these are government schools the should all have a level playing field. The current setup represents more of a two tier system.

My question is does your government school solicits funds from the students or from the ministry of education?

I know two government schools (one primary and one secondary) that require the students' parents to pay fees for native speaker teachers. I think they pay fees for other things too, not just foreign language teachers.
I think schools do get money from the MoE to pay for native English teachers but it is very little (10,000 baht a month??).

That's going on for many years now and nobody can really confirm how much a school receives from the MoE in Bangkok. There were so many threads about it, some people stated that it's up to 50 K/month for an NES teacher, but it would be great to know what exactly is being paid.
