No student fails

No student fails

I believe Ian is far to courteous to the government and its policies. He obviously has taught here for a while, so he should know that his students will not fail because they have not attended class. No student fails. Low grades maybe, but enough to pass. That is the Thai way of excellence in education and a promising career for the teachers and administration. A friend called me yesterday and told me he was being held accountable because his students had poor grades. He hasn't seen his students in 3 weeks. This is a very typical reaction so the school and administrators can blame the foreign teachers. It's called the "blame game" and the school administrators are very good at it.
