    Sabai Dee?

    I just came back from my gate duty and found out that our students will be tested all day long. It must be test day four, or five this term.

    Pratom one to six have to write some tests that should show what they've learned, or is it that they just don't know why they test them so often? It doesn't make any sense to me.

    Unfortunately, do many miss their really needed English, science and math lessons and I'm free to do what I want. Time for me to get an idea about their grades for the midterm.

    I'm not sad that I don't have to work, but I don't understand the importance of testing days in Thailand. I've never heard that students learn anything through testing them so often and it's just another brick in the wall of the educational system of Thailand.

    The last test day ( all day long) was only about a month ago, how much did the kiddies learn in that time frame?

    Learning by testing, or learning by doing? Okay, I might be wrong and just don't get it. Have a great day.

    Don't worry about testing days in Thailand. When a child is born in China they say, "congratulations, and the child only has 6,734 days until its college entrance test."
