  • Decentralization and Innovation of Educational Management Relating to Thai
           Local Government

    • Authors: Suparat Sukwisuth, Chakrit Noranitipadungkarn
      Pages: 100 - 115
      Abstract: In the 85 years since the revolution that transformed the country into a democracy, progress in educational ecentralization has been made but it has been rather slow due to the central authorities’ fear that local agencies do not have the capability to realize the changeover. This situation, however, is gradually changing. Some local authorities have lately shown their talents in strengthening their capacity to educate their people. The objectives of this research were: (1) to study the evolution of Thai decentralization in educational administration policy from the central government to local governments; (2) to study how the local government shows their capacity to manage the education as they are given the opportunity to do so, and, finally; (3) To identity innovation in education administration that local governments have shown so far. This can be considered proof that, if given the opportunity. Local governments can successfully implement central government-initiated educational decentralization policy. The research methodology includes document reviews, interviews with well-known scholars of government education, authorities and administrators. Lastly, it uses a questionnaire for local administrators and school headmasters throughout the country.                               This study found that,           First, the evolution of Thai educational decentralization. There are three different phrases in the decentralization of education from central government to local government. First, after the regime change to the Kingdom of Thailand from 1932 until 1997. This time was the beginnings of Thai democracy. It has been very slow because of problems with unity and national security. Second, during the constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand from 1997 to 2007. This second time saw the blooming of Thai democracy under pressure from the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand. Third was under the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand from 2007 - 2017.This period has seen the achievement of some real results, with development resulting from recognition of the importance of decentralization. Second, The readiness and capacity of Thai local government to respond to educational decentralization. the highest mean value of process management is for planning (4.31), followed by leading (4.29), organizing (4.23), evaluation (4.18), creativity (4.15), and educational management (3.98). All of them, however, are interpreted as being in the “Strongly Agree”. The current resource management opinions of Thai local government toward readiness and capacity to respond to educational decentralization the highest mean value for resource management is for materials (4.25), followed by human resources (4.20), information technology (4.01) and finance and budgeting (3.80) all are in the “Strongly Agree”. Finally, The innovations in educational decentralization by Thai local governments The results of this study show that educational innovation has happened in local government in two major ways. There is innovation in local management, including participation and progressive vision of local governors and local school administrators, and innovation in local education.            In the fact, local governments have the potential for local educational innovation. They should be allowed the opportunity for a positive attitude in local educational management. Furthermore, educational decentralization has usefully developed not only local communities, but also has strengthened national development as well. This is because if people in local communities receive good educational opportunities and a standard quality of education, equity in education services can increase human resources development, bringing more sustainable development

      Pages: 151 - 187
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to find out the personnel’s satisfaction   in all divisions under the Office of the President of Kasetsart University(KU) toward the organizational working climate by collecting data from the personnel between May  and June, B.E. 2560 in total 14 divisions including 8 divisions inside and 6 divisions outside the 50-year Information Building. This study’s questionnaire of Likert’s 5-level rating scale was developed following the Herzberg’s two-factor theory and the theory of organizational climate.  The data were analyzed in terms of percentage, arithmetic means and frequency. There were 903 respondents from the total of 1,099 persons, representing 82.17% and the study revealed that the overall personnel’s satisfaction in all of the divisions under the Office was at the high level ( =3.45 ). When it was considered aspect by aspect, the aspect of colleague support and contribution to promote the organizational working climate had the highest average       ( =3.67) whereas the aspect of having places to rest and appropriate landscapes in the workplaces according to the area conditions had the lowest average ( = 3.08). When it was considered division by division, the personnel’s satisfaction of the KU Infirmary Division had the highest average ( = 4.10) whereas the Personnel Division had the lowest average ( = 2.81). When it was considered the division locations inside the 50-year Information Building, the aspect of colleague support and contribution to promote the organization work climate had the highest average ( =3.71) whereas the aspect of having places to rest and appropriate landscapes in the workplaces according to the area conditions had the lowest average ( = 2.81). When it was considered the division locations outside the 50-year Information Building, the aspect of lighting in the office adequate for the operation had the highest average ( =3.74) whereas the aspect of quality food sold near the workplaces had the lowest average ( = 3.35).   Due to the results of the lowest averages in some aspects as mentioned above, the study recommended that there should be some places to rest; the landscapes near the workplaces should be appropriately improved according to the area conditions; food center with quality near the workplaces should be more provided and the toilets should be always kept clean. As for further study, the personnel’s needs in these divisions under the Office of the President should be investigated in order to obtain results for further improvement and development according to the personnel’s needs for the maximum benefit.

      Abstract:                  This study was conducted by the researcher with the objective to: 1) study the conditions and problems in promoting the participation of civil society in child care, 2) study the factors in place for the management and the participation of civil society that affects child care, and 3) offer guidelines to promote the participation of civil society in child care in orphanages. Research has been done using mixed-method research that merges the qualitative and quantitative approach using the methods of, 1) in-depth interviews of government executives within both political parties, department officials, and civil society leaders at high levels. Interviews were conducted on how the operation of civil society can guide countries, as well as drawing comparisons to other countries, 2) brainstorming with the Executive Department within the orphanages and the civil society, and 3) obtaining data from a group of individuals and analyzing with descriptive statistics (Descriptive Statistics) and the statistical reference (Inferential Statistics).                  The result of this research has found that the existing approach and laws are not conducive to giving civil society input into juvenile care in the orphanage; so the numbers within civil society choosing to become foster families are too few compared to the number of juveniles in need from the orphanages, and also obstructs civil society from volunteering, counselling or other roles that contribute to supporting juveniles within orphanages to have a better quality of life. Some abandoned juveniles in the orphanage's care have mental and physical problems caused from their own behavior and the lack of quality staff.  The result of this research shows that the level of support for the management structure in the orphanages and civil society’s participation in juvenile care in the orphanage overall was medium. In the meantime, the support for juvenile care in the orphanage overall was found at a high level.             In conclusion, the guidelines for a new course in promoting the participation of civil society in juvenile care in orphanages should correspond with the approach laid out by the United Nations regarding juvenile rights and foster family programs. It contains protective measures against dysfunctional families and child abandonment by creating or modifying laws and legislation, and assigns the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Public Health, including the Ministry of Education to watch over this area for the betterment of all juveniles in orphanage care.
