Challenges

The education system in Thailand faces many complex and interrelated challenges, including the socio-economic status of students, the public’s understanding of educational inequity, the effectiveness of education management and policies, and the lack of community engagement in children’s education. The result of this is that many Thai children lack access to the education they need to reach their full potential and create a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

"A considerable number of Thai children have lower skills than the country average of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries in all subjects (from PISA 2018)."

"In 2021, there were approximately 1.9 million children living in poverty and extreme poverty in Thailand. This represents a significant portion of the total population of compulsory school-age children, which is estimated to be around 9 million."

Equitable Education Fund - EEF

56% of elementary classrooms have an average of less than one teacher per classroom. This places a heavy burden on individual teachers, who must shoulder the responsibility of teaching multiple subjects in a single classroom.

Why You Should Teach For Thailand?

Our Principles

Addressing the challenges in Thailand’s education system cannot be sustainably achieved by a single individual. It requires the involvement and support of a network of leaders from various sectors, including educational policy developers, social enterprise entrepreneurs, teachers, and school principals. These stakeholders share experiences of real problems and have a common goal of promoting equitable education. With these cooperations, we can help children in Thailand determine a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Imagine how far Thailand can advance in this scenario.
