Education in Thailand

Today I will tell you about the area of curriculum that needs more attention when preparing a road map for Education reform.
The area is not unfamiliar with all of us who are playing a role in education administration.

It is mentioned by Bill Gates and it is widely spread through the Internets for a period of times.

It is about working lives and life experiences.

What we have to ask is how can we incorporate these ideas in our curriculum, if we find they are important for our children, whether they are GEN-Y or GEN-Z. The decision on the necessity to incorporate these principles in our curriculum will be made after conducting some elaborated discussions of present practices in our educational system.

Do you have any troubles with the existing formal and informal practices in our schools?

Do you want to systematically and scientifically seek knowledge about these troubles?

Let's take a  look at 11 points Bill Gates told children in the United States of America.

    RULE 1
     Life  is not fair - get used to it.

     RULE 2
     The  world won't care about your self-esteem. The world
     will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you  feel
     good about yourself.

     RULE 3
     You  will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out
     of high school. You won't be a vice president with
     car phone, until you earn  both.

     RULE 4
     If  you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a
     boss. He doesn't have tenure.

     RULE 5
     Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
     grandparents had a different word for burger flipping
     they
     called it Opportunity.

     RULE 6
     If  you mess up,it's not your parents' fault, so don't
     whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

     RULE 7
     Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as
     they are now. They got that way from paying  your bills,
     cleaning your clothes and  listening to you talk about
     how cool  you are. So before you save the rain forest
     from the parasites of your parent's generation, try
     delousing the closet in your own room.


     RULE 8
     Your  school may have done away with winners and losers,
     but life has not. In some schools they have  abolished
     failing grades and they'll  give you as many times as
     you want to  get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
     slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

     RULE 9
     Life  is not divided into semesters. You don't get
     summers off and very few employers are interested in
     helping you find yourself. Do that on your own  time.

     RULE 10
     Television is NOT real life. In real life people
     actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to  jobs.

     RULE 11
     Be  nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for
     one.






What do we do to inculcate in our students this kind of working culture and  practical life experiences?

Do we have to integrate these with those 15 points from Germany that I told you in the other post?
