A project offering a university education to “good students” is expanding to many provinces. […]
The project to set aside a special quota for students with a record of volunteerism and strong morals started four years ago in Nakhon Pathom. […]
More than 1,000 students have been recruited under the project so far, based not on academic tests but criteria such as good conduct, strong leadership, volunteer activities, environmental conservation and campaigning against drugs.
So here we go… it’s not important anymore to recruit students with real aptitudes, real knowledge… no… what the New Thailand needs are students with “good morality”…
Do you want to cry ?
We (people with at least 2 neurons and a knowledge of history) do know very well the meaning and consequences of those words when they are combined together : “project”, “good morality”, “volunteerism”… What’s the goal ? To create the perfect Thai student ? The perfect… human being ? The New Thai ?
Unfortunately, these twisted and sick policies have a real playground in countries like Thailand… All the lunatics, the very same who go to whorehouses and who are corrupted, seem so obsessed with “morality”.
They want to cure… the people. Your cure is their redemption.
Classic scheme. Seen over and over throughout history.
But wait, it’s getting even scarier.
Utumporn Jamornmann, director of the National Institute of Education Testing Service (NIETS), who is an expert in creating several national academic and aptitude tests to screen students for universities, said the project was a good start.
The country now does not have national morality tests due to the time limit for announcing national test results for hundreds of thousands of students.
“NIETS also wants to create national morality tests and already has forms for such tests. Academic tests are not enough. However, to test what is in people’s minds is very hard. We need to do research to guarantee the accuracy of the tests,” he said. (Nation)
Utumporn Jamornmann and his absurd NIETS are a disgrace.
Shame on the thai government to fund this public organization (officially created in 2005) and to allow those lunatics to pursue their quest for “good morality”.
And as usual : we would like to know what our dashing Prime Minister Abhisit (allegedly educated at Oxford, in the UK, loud supporter of democracy, human rights, “rule of law”) is thinking about all this crap ?
