    Technically, a child CAN fail but the process of failing a student in a subject and, thereby, not completing that grade is a detailed process of paperwork, notifications, interventions, guidance, tutoring, etc. from the teacher. It is a process which most Foreign teachers are unaware of or don’t want to take part in. That doesn’t even begin to touch on the legal ramifications faced by the school and teacher if they are not able to properly document what was done to ensure the student was given every opportunity to succeed. This is why students seem to be passed on so as to “make it someone else’s problem”. Teachers can be beat down by a byzantine system that leads to accommodation, resignation, and acceptance. And looking at the U.S. education system, it would be disingenuous to say this problem is unique to Thailand. In American, they like euphemisms like “No Child Left Behind” or “Race to the Top”. In Thailand, they tend to have less sugar coating on their slogans so “No Child Fails!” 🙂
