Academic warns govt against frequent changes in Education Ministry
The chairwoman of Chulalongkorn University Council Wednesday cautioned Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra against naming a new education minister too often.
Suchada Kiranandana called on Education Minister Phongthep Thepkanjana to pass her message on to Yingluck.
Phongthep, placed at the helm of the Education Ministry in late October, is the third education minister in the twoyear old Yingluckled government.
"The country's educational problems cannot be solved, partly because the government's educational policies are not consistent. The education minister is changed far too often," Suchada said.
She was speaking at a certificate-presentation ceremony at which Phongthep was also present.
