BANGKOK, 24 September 2015 -The Office of Basic Education Commission (OBEC) has been instructed to develop a curriculum that is up to date, under Thailand’s education reform program. 

The Minister of Education, General Daopong Rattasuwan has presented a civil servant policy at the OBEC where he stressed the need to modernize the curriculum.

The Education Minister also placed importance on improving existing teacher training programs, as university graduates don’t always possess the skills needed to teach in a classroom.
