Thailand’s education problem of course, is lack of independent thinking, with so much worshiping blindly going on here. “We are stunned because our ranking is very low,” said Phawit Thongrot, assistant to Chaturon, the Education Minister, after the WEF’s Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013 showed Thailand‘s education system’s dismal performance. Mr Phawit is furthering examining the report’s findings so he can discuss them with Mr Chaturon, who is interested in this issue. “The Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) in 2012 results clearly shows Thai children are not good at thinking,” Mr Phawit said. Among the 10 Asean countries, Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei Darussalam take the top three spots, respectively, while Cambodia comes in sixth and Vietnam seventh, followed by Thailand. Myanmar and Laos were not included in the survey. (Source)
