Teaching license dilemma

Angie

Now I am in a new school and would like to request a new waiver to teach without a license at Krusapa


The unintended results of the teaching license requirement

Thomas

Kudos to the system

Dave

Do you have difficulty in understanding the requirements to be a teacher? How are they inconsistent with the need to change and the goals of improving the education system?


Thailand's ill-timed implementation of the 'provisional permit'

Ajarn Jim

When a foreign teacher's current 'waiver' letter expires, then that teacher must meet the requirements for the new 'provisional permit' if the teacher doesn't possess a teaching license.
