Kasanee Nakhpong of the Prime Minister’s Office presided over the opening of the March 5-8 workshop at the Ambassador City Hotel.
The Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission is working to suppress and prevent corruption by having schools educate youths to be honest. Part of the plan requires all sectors to support the education policy toward building good and talented individuals who adhere to HM the King’s sufficiency economy philosophy.
Teachers, school administrators and students are taught how to detect and avoid corruption in educational institutions.
Benjalak Namfah of the Primary Education Commission Office said officials are aware of the importance of suppressing and preventing corruption in educational institutions and, thus, organized the seminar.
The workshop aimed to crate good attitudes among attendees to be aware, understand and think logically about corruption, as well as absorb the value of goodness naturally and learn the difference between right and wrong. Speakers talked about having pride in doing good, ignoring cheaters and be ready to work without resorting to cheating.
Kasanee admitted that although the government has campaigned against corruption, its image abroad has not improved. Part of the reason for that is that studies have found Thais will accept corruption if it leads to national progress. (CPRD)
