BANGKOK, March 29 (TNA) – The first Thai female education minister announced three main policies.
Newly appointed Education Minister Trinuch Thienthong entered her ministry for the first time today and announced the three important policies that she would immediately implement.
Miss Trinuch, also an MP from the coalition-core Palang Pracharath Party, said she would promote safety at schools, provide people’s access to digital resources and knowledge and campaign for vocational education.
For safety at schools, the minister said schools must be free of bullies and child abuse. Those who abuse students physically and mentally would face decisive action, she said.
On digital knowledge and access, Miss Trinuch said the Ministry of Education would share the knowledge and skills that were necessary for people of the 21st century and push for the development of adequate internet networks and relevant equipment to ensure public access to digital resources.
For the promotion of vocational education, the minister said that Thailand suffered the shortage of vocational workers and parents could plan a good future for their children by sending them to vocational schools.
The minister said she would actively promote leading vocational schools as the choices for students and parents. (TNA)
