Main Article Content
The purposes of this research were to study the expectations and problems toward educational management models of the schools under the Nakhon Ratchasima Municipality. The 364 samples consisted of 4 school boards, 8 administrators, 90 teachers, and 262 parents. The research instruments were questionnaires and group discussion techniques. Quantitative data were analyzed utilizing frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation. Qualitative data were synthesized in the content. The study indicated that the overall average of expectations of the schools being classified into 3 categories was at a high level. Schools should communicate with parents and students to understand the true purpose of the school classification. Students will be developed according to the potential of each age range and will be satisfied because the school can create an environment suitable for their ages. However, the problems were also at a high level. The most obvious problem that may occur is in the case of parents with children studying at more than one level who may encounter transportation problems between home and school. There are traffic jams in Nakhon Ratchasima Municipality during the time of picking up and delivering students. The research results should be presented to community forums to hear more opinions. There should be incentives for parents to participate in educational management. Schools should strengthen the Parent Teacher Association. There should be collaboration between school administrators under the Nakhon Ratchasima Municipality to increase the quality of educational management by having some similar standards.
