Promotions now linked to experience and consistency of hours of instruction.


BANGKOK: -- THE EDUCATION Ministry has launched a new set of criteria for teachers seeking academic ranks in a bid to bring teachers closer to their students.



Starting from July 5 this year, teachers who apply for an academic rank will have to demonstrate a lot of time spent teaching – not academic papers – as the main promotion criterion.

Means little to us and just about as little to Thai teachers.

They are more likely to prefer texting in class to "writing academic papers" to get a raise and promotion. Just because they are assigned more class time does not mean it is productive class time.
