    Is the teachers' retirement age flexible in Thailand?

    Quite a few things seem to be flexible in Thailand.

    Yes, I know a number of teachers who are over 65 and having no problems with employment in international schools.

    It depends on your school, but yes I have heard of a few internationals schools keeping staff on after they are 60. Usually, these teachers have been working in their school for a number of years before they turned 60.
    Government schools in Thailand, are more stricter on the retirement age though.

    We've got a couple of teachers approaching 70. Doesn't seem to be an issue.
