BANGKOK, July 21 -- Thailand's Ministry of Education has sped up its education reform plans, focusing on teacher quality development, education management system and instructional practice.

Permanent-secretary for Education Suthasri Wongsamarn told journalists on Monday that the conclusion and suggestions at a meeting held to discuss educational reform roadmap Saturday with concerned parties will be proposed to the Head of Social Psychology Division of the army-led National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) at the end of July.

The roadmap will then be put into action, focusing on teacher quality reform, including raising teaching standards, solving teachers’ debt problems, solving teacher shortages, followed by education management system and instructional practice reforms, with the national budget for the education reform projected at Bt502.245 billion for the 2015 fiscal year.

Vocational Education Commission proposes 6 measures to stop student fights

BANGKOK, 21 July 2014 (NNT) -The Vocational Education Commission has submitted six strategies to prevent fighting among vocational students, to the NCPO and is cooperating with other countries to improve the educational standard.


The Permanent Secretary for Education Suthasri Wongsamarn has set up a meeting with the Ministry of Education’s administrators to discuss improving vocational education standards and solving quarrels among vocational students following the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO)’s policy.

He revealed that the ministry has collaborated with Germany, Singapore, China and Japan to study and find out the best model to improve the vocational education system in Thailand.

As for the fighting problem, six measures have been created to prevent the issue, including requiring each vocational school to be responsible for their own specific areas, monitoring risk zones with the authority, risk zone ranking, making a blacklist of students who always initiate crimes, visiting the students on the list at home and contacting Internal Security Operations Command for help if any crime or fight occurs.

I repeat. How much is it going to cost the parents? Will the reform reduce what they are already forced to pay for after hours instruction? Who is going to foot the bill for this reform?

Very, very few countries have the faintest idea what the purpose of 'education' is, let alone what it might comprise.

It ranges from education by numbers in the US through to "made it up on the skating rink" (and then changed it next year) in the UK.

There seem to really only be two models that 'work': the Chinese/South Korean slaughterhouses...and they have their reasons for that and the Scandinavian models

Be a wonderful contribution to human life if Thailand could come up with an education system that allowed for students to acquire the good things of Thai culture, along with academic/scientific/technological excellence.

I wonder why I am not hopeful?

You ever see the O net test here. The English is terrible with misspellings. They have to start from the A, B C;s. In fact the General need to send the whole Ministry of Education to Government House to inactive post.

There are too many different books and subjects used in Thailand.

To properly reform Thailand and make all people love each other, All Thai student should only strictly follow a single curriculum issued by Gen Prayuth. In this way, all Thai will be united with a single thinking.
