A new report shows that Thailand’s education system is still behind most of the world and 8th of the 10th in the Asean committee nations.
Part of this low score may be reflective in the lack of analytical skills that Thai schools teach to students. In order to score higher, Thailand must begin to teach students to think for themselves and to think out of the book. Thailand cannot remain a country that teaches only reading, writing and arithmetic. Higher level thinking skills need to be taught to all students.

BANGKOK, 31 October 2015 (NNT) – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has instructed the authorities to accelerate educational reform policy at all levels, said government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd.
Both short-term and long-term educational reform policy will be pushed forward to create quality education, reduce inequality and meet labor markets’ needs. For that reason, the authorities will quickly collect database on current employment conditions and tendencies of labor markets’ needs in a one-month time, he said.
That is to map out the production of manpower to accommodate the domestic labor market and meet demands for employment in Special Economic Zones and the ASEAN Economic Community scheduled to open at the end of this year.
Under the planned educational reform, Thai children will have access to optimum education and learning in happy atmosphere and become full-fledged under the 4Hs theme – Head, Heart, Hand and Health.
The prime minister was also quoted as saying the educational reform and development plans must have a clear goal in terms of both quantity and quality while children should be instilled with pride in Thainess, be independent and tend to public interests.
