Let us remember the fallen teachers

Let us remember the fallen teachers

Before 2019, Filipino teachers wishing to obtain a teaching license had two choices: study in Thailand or study in Philippine universities. Thai teachers themselves brought small cards with the addresses of the two organizations to the teachers. Everything looked 100% legit. Importantly, on-site classes with representatives of Philippine universities were held in Bangkok.

In 2019, something broke down between Thais and Filipinos. Suddenly it appeared that the Very Important Organization doesn't accept documents from Filipino universities. It demands "equivalence of educational qualification" from the Thai Ministry of Higher Education. This situation affected all teachers (more than 200) who obtained their diplomas in 2019, 2020, 2021 and beyond.

Now, after two years, all teachers have received information that their diplomas don't meet the requirements, because the postgraduate studies were not registered in Thailand.

So someone earned 60,000+ baht for the Diploma in Teacher Education; the teachers were left with worthless diplomas and the Very Important Organization washed its hands, even though it had been accepting diplomas from Filipinos for years.

So let us remember the fallen teachers.

No one can be trusted in Thailand.
