Ministry of Education vows to urgently reform Thai education

BANGKOK, 12 January (NNT) – The Ministry of Education is pushing for education reform by urgently developing standards of teachers. The ministry stressed that teachers must be evaluated after they were trained.


Deputy Minister of Education M.D.Thirakiat Charoensetthasilp on Monday attended a meeting with the National Reform Council and National Legislative Assembly.

He informed the meeting that the ministry was steering its work to develop the country’s education, especially in terms of teachers’ development. Teachers as well as students who were studying to be teachers needed to be evaluated and there must be a system to assure teachers’ quality, said the deputy minister.

Meanwhile, Member of the National Reform Steering Assembly for Education Piyathida Praditthabathuka said all sides agreed to reform the country’s education in the same direction so that it was completed within the time frame set by the government.

The ministry stressed that teachers must be evaluated after they were trained.

Now that's a novel idea. The rest of the world please not this innovative approach to improving education standards.

The ministry's year planner must have had ' mention education reform ' listed for Monday so that should do for a week, maybe a month or two.

If teacher evaluation was to be seriously conducted now there would be tens of thousands of vacancies.

Whilst they're at it, a recognizable national curriculum would be nice too!

Just one item: add world history and geography, especially world history.

Plans for improvements:

1. Satop corruption

2. Englishee cancen

3. Satop sakoon directors from profiting on school projects / food sales

4. Satop number 1 from becoming reality

So the people responsible for the current teaching curriculum and current standards are now going to reinvent themselves?

Is this a repeat of a previous announcement, in case someone has forgotten. It will take years to implement this fully, training methods will have to be upgraded, new national curriculem, (including basic world history and geography [as mentioned in previous post]), retraining existing teachers, easing of work permits, so that native speakers can be employed as teaching assistants to Thai English teachers, etc. etc. This is a long term project, and we all know what happens to projects implemented by one set of trough feeders when a new set of trough feeders gain power. If parents want their children to educated properly, they will have to pay for it themselves (as many already do). This is leading to yet another social divide, the rich, the educated middle class and the badly educated poorer people. At least with the internet and apps on dumbphones English and other languages are readily available to all Thais, plus of course limited (by big bruvver) information as to the state of thw world outside of Thailand.

"...The Ministry of Education is pushing for education reform..."

How many times have we heard this and all they have really done is reduce the number of hours students spend in school...a step backwards.

Same old BS, they never even bother to change the script showing the same energy they lack in actually trying to implement change.

As posted earlier this crap is churned out by calendar listing or when someone feels the need to be quoted saying something supposedly positive.

Just make a test, who can't pass it looses his/her job.....

And for vacancy's just stop the corruption. Where money is asked to become a teacher you kick the director out ASAP. Am i hardened? Nope, i'm fallang and that's how we do it back home.
