12 WHY Tier II in Thailand? Candidates’ Comments Ability to complete Tier II over the summer (vs. 1-2 years) Job responsibilities & time constraints conflict with attendance in courses during the school year Step ‘far’ away from the job/office; & concentrate on Tier II Network with administrators from other districts & Thailand Learn, visit & hands-on experience the Thai education system/schools; comparative study of education in Thailand Expand cultural awareness & understanding Appeals to ‘adventurous’ leaders Cost competitive with other Tier II programs (1-2 yrs); plus tax deductible!
