The Comparative Study of Ethical Procedures in Education for Law Amendments in Thailand


This study was aimed (1) to examine the condition and problems in ethical processes in education in Thailand (2) to compare the ethical procedures in education from ten countries or regions (3) to provide recommendations for improving legislation within Thailand. The research methodology was based on documentary research that was divided into three phases. The first part was analyzing three pieces related to educational personnel management laws in Thailand and interviewing the experts to verify the finding data. The next step was finding related ethical procedure regulations from ten countries or regions for comparing the procedures outlined in the professional ethics of the Education Code of Conduct by applying the Simultaneous Approach of Comparative method. The last step was consultation with various stakeholders and experts for approving the guidelines of law amendments related to improving ethical procedures in Thailand by applying the policy recommendation method. The finding from Thailand’s related laws was that there is an overlap from the personnel management system and an inconsistency among the authorized organizations of schools in Thailand. Moreover, in this comparative study from ten countries or regions, the following points were suggested: The first point was de-centralizing the power of disciplinary and ethical procedures to local educational units and institutes by appointing subcommittee members in each province in advance, for cases of professional misconduct. The second point was revising the subordinate legislation for the disciplinary and ethical procedures to be combined, and having this legislation ultimately amended.
