    Can't see why some of you lot are bothered whether a teacher here has a degree or not or is working illegaly - are you all a bunch of saints or something?

    I doubt if most people care about teachers working illegally, but some may find it amusing that they are being arrested for using fake degrees Fake degrees that their school asked them to get and made them pay for

    Lets have a theoretical look at this, lets say you are working as a teacher with out any paper work, you get caught, 20k baht fine and kicked out of the country for a day, ie return flight to your home country and back, generally though if you get caught you can pay the bribe and carry on working without it going to court.

    Now lets say you have a fake degree and a work permit, you straight away have committed fraud with the labour dept when you obtained your work permit, your work permit is invalidated, so the charges against you are fraud and working without a work permit, you could also be charged probably with aiding and abetting forgery, not looking so good is it

    A few months ago one of the teachers, who's working illegally, was picked from NSIS. The police never brought up school's name (rumour has it that school had some under the table deal with the piggies).

    One of our members, who works at NSIS, might be able to give further details.

    So I've met the first three saints on the board - hallelujah to you brothers!


    You must be a right barrel of laughs....


    Slimboy - do you really equate a Tefl teacher without the right paperwork to a bogus doctor? - hardly in the same league.

    A bad education or a bad diagnosis will both fok up your life, so yes they are pretty similar

    not blindly defending teachers at all - just defending people that are doing a day's hard work for not a particularly great wage.

    Don't tell me you've never driven a car without some minor defect - perhaps you should have your licences revoked in retrospect.

    This is the same logic - you 3 are claiming to be of superiour standing.

    CMN:

    my status in that regard is irelevant - the fact that some of you take joy in seeing people deported and possibly locked up in a Thai prison is disturbing.

    No doubt you have all broken the law here in some minor way before - as long as you're not blatantly harming others I can't see the problem with 'cutting a few corners' as necessary to survive.
