The prime focus of the article is on presenting changes in teacher education from 1974 to the present day, against the backdrop of key political and social forces. It reviews the long attempt to transform teacher education in Thailand. The author concludes that at present, Teaching and Teacher Certificates, together with their respective approval processes, have been operated under the Teacher Council of Thailand (TCT)’s close supervision throughout Thailand. The author argues that to be effective as a Thai teacher, one must not only yield uncritically to TCT’s standards, but must also be able to engage wholeheartedly in the field research that relates their knowledge on pedagogic principles to the understanding of Thai education and social issues.
