BANGKOK, 2 July 2014 (NNT) - Mr. Kamol Rodklai, Secretary General of the Office of Basic Education Commission (OBEC), has moved to whip up an education plan, with a focus on instilling morality codes and analytic skills in students.

The plan was discussed yesterday during an OBEC meeting to set the operating direction for its officials. The meeting gave the officials 3 months to address such urgent issues as curriculum adjustment, promoting use of new technologies to reduce educational gaps, and raising the educational measurement tests to an international standard.

Mr. Kamol said curriculum improvements would mainly cover the subjects of history and civil duties and they must be ready for implementation in the second semester of 2014.

He also talked about the 2015 operation plan, saying the OBEC would focus on sharpening students’ analytic skills and instilling patriotism, honesty as well as religious principles, and love for the monarchy, in accordance with the policy of the National Council for Peace and Order.

Mr. Kamol also said teachers would be emphasized to improve their teaching techniques, along with ethical principles, and vision.
