The Ministry of Education was instructed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha to press ahead with the government’s policy for students to spend less time studying textbooks in classrooms but to spend more time on critical thinking and learning, said Maj-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd, spokesman of the government, on Sunday.
He noted that the government’s policy was warmly received by many parents of students who wanted to see their kids spend less time studying textbooks in classrooms but spend more time on learning and other activities.
Maj-Gen Sansern said that the prime minister had wanted to see Thai students being capable of critical thinking and ethical, pointing out that school administrators, in the past, were not strict enough with their students on promoting critical thinking.
As most schools are due to open on Monday for the next semester, the prime minister has reminded school administrators to pay attention to four main issues: gambling especially football gambling among students especially during the European soccer tournament from June 10-July 10; dengue fever and Zika virus; road accidents; and student brawls, said the spokesman.
