Prime Minister Prayut Cha-ocha has unveiled a number of educational plans which he claims would serve the needs of students and society.

During his weekly TV talk program, PM Prayut spoke about the 2015-2020 education reform strategies which cover three major areas namely teaching, vocational skill development and education management.

According to Gen Prayut, the most urgent mission for the government is to raise the literacy rate in primary schools. The government is urging schools to revive the spelling system in the teaching of grade 1 pupils. The campaign will continue until Mar 2016 after which time its achievement will be assessed.

Regarding the vocational skill development, new courses will be introduced at educational opportunity expansion schools and those in the five special economic zones to boost vocational skills of learners. English teaching at basic education level will be adjusted to serve the needs of students and society. At the same time, distance learning will be upgraded to boost the quality of learners.

As for personnel development, the government will launch more training for school directors, educators and educational supervisors to enhance their abilities.
