Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
The educational system of any country is determined by the need of its people, and that in turn is based mainly on culture, economy, and politics. It is unlikely that there will be a standardized educational system that is applicable to every nation. The solution to a particular problem in the school can be a valuable reference source for another school experiencing similar difficulties. American and Thailand educational systems, as well as other countries, have changes and are continuing to change rapidly. Although Thailand is one of the countries which believes in a general education, this tradition is also related to stability. In every situation one needs to weigh both stability and the need for change. There are situations in which more stability and less change is desirable. Many schools in deprived neighborhoods, for example, do need to change, but they need a sense of continuity and stability.
