GURU COVER STORY
Last week Education Minister Chaturon Chaisaeng ordered officials to look into a report prepared by the World Economic Forum (WEF) that showed the Thai educational system was potentially left behind at the bottom among eight Asean countries surveyed (to be fair, the WEF surveyed 144 countries around the world and in certain aspects of education we're doing better than others). Our dad, the Bangkok Post, reported later in the week that the minister vowed to embark on efforts to improve the education system and that his ministry will make education reform a national agenda.
This week we decided to do our part in improving Thai education (we think we're qualified because we all completed first grade successfully). We explore different aspects of the Thai education system and offer our own ideas to improve it, opinion polls, and a round-up of cool schools and teachers from around the country.
You don't need to look far to encourage learning i.e. buying tablet devices and underusing them. You can just simply create learning opportunities for people in their daily lives.
