Seize this chance to revolutionise education

What a bonus we have in coup leader General Prayuth Chan-ocha, who is not just a good songwriter.

Prayuth should think of revolutionising the education system as well. Sweeping changes in education have proved to be easier and successful in countries like China and Vietnam because their governments are more authoritarian than democratic.

Since Thailand is one of the five poorest performers in the world in terms of money spent on education versus the quality of graduates, we should think about revolutionising the education system.
