Strict discipline at Thai schools

Teachers aren't afraid to dish out the punishment if a student steps out of line.

A short-lived teaching career?

I'm not sure whether Thailand isn't right for me or I'm not right for Thailand.

In spite of the draconian disciplinary measures, the students are basically normal, mostly happy, playful, loving children, who are extremely well behaved, and attentive to my classroom instructions - when the Thai teachers and assistants are present.
