Over at Papaya in Thailand, there is an interesting essay from the perspective of a foreign lecturer at a Thai university. It outlines what the author sees as the failings of the education sector and emphasises what he calls “strong evidence of malnutrition of the mind”. I’m sure the author of this piece would appreciate comments from the many New Mandala readers who have their own experiences of universities in Thailand. There is much here that could provoke useful commentary and discussion.
