Not getting any replies to my other thread so thought I'd ask in a more direct way here. Please excuse the overlap of ideas and situations....Thank you in advance... While we all know you need a WP to legally teach, I was wondering about actual experiences where teachers in Government schools are in fact questioned on campus by police. It seems to me, in a Government setting, the school Director would normally be approached first. It doesn't, again using my concept of Thai culture, seem possible that a farang teacher would be tracked down in a classroom and arrested on the spot in front of students etc. without first the Director being given an ultimatum. We all also know that several "agencies" never get their teachers Work Permits (or VISA's) and teachers are sometimes left on their own to make border runs or teach while on retirement or "education" or marriage types of VISA's. In summary once again, regrets for the long inquiry, in short and to the point, "does it ever happen", it being teachers getting picked up at a Government school for being there without all the legal paperwork? Please assume said "teacher" isn't a suspect in some other inquiry or crime. All things held as constant and otherwise legal(aka not a criminal sought) does the teacher actually have anything to "worry" about in this regard? I mean at the worse, is she going to be told by the Director that she's got to leave and call it a day or exactly what? We all would like to be "legal" but in reality, there are sometimes too many hurdles to jump and/or agencies have to make money and money talks.
