Distance-learning classes set to start at 15,000 small schools


Story by Tanpisit Lerdbamrungchai

CONCERNS HAVE been raised over some students’ ability to keep pace with lessons as the Education Ministry prepares to launch distance-learning classes at 15,523 small schools.

During his visit to Suphan Buri’s Wat Then Plai School, which has held distance learning via satellite for three years, Education Minister Lt-General Surachet Chaiwong said the project aimed to help alleviate the teacher shortage and teachers not qualified to teach subjects – for instance, a social-studies graduate may end up teaching maths.

Surachet said the technology needed in modern education would be used appropriately in the context of each area and school.

Distance learning has been expanded after the computer tablet project was scrapped.

Surachet said distance learning was more worthwhile and corruption-free.
