Home Schooling in Korat
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:23:26 AM »
Hi Folks

Am considering having my daughter schooled at home as am not impressed with Korat schools, can anyone advise if this is possible.  My daughter is almost 4 years old and presently at kindergarten.

Thanks
Davidc

I think it is possible i remember reading a post on t/v way back in 2009, from a well known long standing expat Barryofthailand

post reads
We live in Korat, and one of my American neighbors has four children that are Home Schooled. They get the books, and the exams from the States, and the exams are then mailed back to the states for credit. Bit more on the subject below - hope this helps

https://interhigh.co.uk/
Real-time lessons online - Lessons are live streamed directly, teachers lead and the students engage, interact and can access the cloud-based lesson library containing the full curriculum at any time.

What it’s like to go to Interhigh + Online school TOUR!

Hello Davidc

New to this forum

Just curious as to what schools you were looking at, as I am going to move my young lad next term
Have already picked, & certainly didn't like some due to so many in classroom

by the time you get an answer,they would have left school
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

We have been looking at basically all the schools around Korat and none have impressed us so far.  Our daughter is presently at Plookpanya but we along with quite a few other parents feel that the school is going downhill hence the reason we are looking to move her.

Will keep on looking and post if we find anything worth discussing

Cheers

First of all I'm real & paying out real money for these schools
Funny you should mention Plookpanya as I'm planning to send young lad their, since we're just up the rd in Pantingthong 4
Was at Sarassat EL program ( 30,000 p/t ) but his day was 12 hrs long due to him being first/last on bus run & that dreaded 1hr after school crap (trapped with that due to bus )
Was paying 36,000 for bus, should of had him at Plook from the begining
You must be aware that Plook uped their fees by 20% (amazing Thailand ), but for the yr that's what I was paying at Sarassat

Hi real Auss,
 
Yes schooling is getting more expensive by the minute, we all want the best for our children, but you can't put a price on either your child's happiness or future can you. bless em! 12hr. day is far too long.

Agree
& then to add Kumon on the weekends
I also search the web for material & by just going of some of the sites that a kid of a certain age should know EG IXL for example, the Thai schools aren't looking good
