Prayut claimed the new courses will reduce the duration of study time but increase the knowledge of students with technology. It is hoped it will result in all first-graders being able to read and write, and boost the proficiency in English and other languages.
The video conference gave the general a chance to speak to all teachers and educational administrators about the direction of education. He also opened the floor to teachers to ask questions and share experiences about Thailand’s educational system.
