Thai Teacher in the Land of Educational Equity / กว่าจะได้เป็น Fulbrighter เต็มตัว (Feb. 5, 08)

By Yajai Mekraksakit, Fulbrighter 2007



Ajarn Yajai Mekraksakit was one of the six department heads under the first Special Administrator Exchange Program. Even after a cautious preparation and well laid-out plan for the trip to the U.S, she almost missed the check-in time. The incident was her first excitement before her actual journey started! 


Together with her group of six administrators, she observed primary and secondary education regarding education administration, teaching techniques, classroom discipline, school regulations and educational laws. All children in the U.S. have an equal right to access education regardless of race and background. She was very impressed with the government’s concern about the non-English speaking children in the American schools around the country, from ‘No Child Left Behind’ Law enactment. Apart from the regular curriculum, the schools also emphasized on vocational education, additional professional skills and students’ emotional development. Ajarn Yajai not only accessed new knowledge and direct experience but also had a chance to promote Thai education and culture. As a Fulbrighter, she felt the commitment to maximize what she had gained during her grant period in the U.S. to benefit the Thai students and institutions upon the completion of the program.
