Roadmap for education reform finalized; 9 key points for improving education

BANGKOK, 15 August 2014 (NNT) – The Ministry of Education has finalized its roadmap for the reform of the nation's education system, which will be driven by adjustments in nine aspects.

Sutsi Wongsaman, the permanent secretary to the Ministry of Education, said on Thursday that the working committee in charge of the reform has completed the education reform roadmap for years 2015-2021.

The road map calls for an urgent implementation of reforms during 2015 and 2016, a period now dubbed as the first phase in the ministry's road map. During this phase, curricula of primary and secondary schools will be adjusted to better provide life skills for students and to reduce redundancy and reliance on tutoring schools – changes which will allow students to have more free time to spend with their family. The curricula of vocational and tertiary education institutes will be revised to better tailor to employers' real demand and to boost the image of the vocational pathway. More research and projects will be encouraged at the tertiary education level.

The roadmap also calls for development of high-performing teachers, promotion of long-distance learning, providing real education to underprivileged children, and the drafting of a master plan for education technologies.

The finished road map will be implemented following approval of the National Council for Peace and Order.
