Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha instructed the Education Ministry to review the country's education curriculum to ensure that students respond well to it, the ministry’s permanent secretary Chaiyapruek Serirak has said.

Speaking in a meeting of the strategic administration committee chaired by PM Prayut on Monday, the premier asked the Education Ministry to review the country's curriculum to ensure that it can increase students’ knowledge, improve society and enhance the country’s potential, said Chaiyapruek. 

In the meeting, the Education Ministry presented its plans for national strategic education management, constitutional education management and support for private schools. 

Chaiyapruek said the PM believed that the most important mechanism was the teacher, so teachers must constantly improve themselves and adjust their teaching methods by learning with students and pursuing the use of technology. 

The PM also said English was important and could reduce disparities, so it was necessary to improve English teaching.
