Author(s) : Meechai Orsuwan

Abstract

This paper hypothesizes that positive attitude towards education can be nurtured and developed during the childhood period. Hence, the research employs longitudinal data to examine the impact of high school teacher characteristics on the postgraduate educational aspirations of their former students 12 years after they were first interviewed. The results indicate that individual's postgraduate educational aspirations are positively related to student's perceptions of their former high school teachers. Individuals who believe their teachers were good are likely to pursue postgraduate education
