Citizens' duties and history will be taught intensively in schools starting from the second term of the 2014 academic year, according to the Office of the Basic Education Commission (Obec). 

Kamol Rodklai, Obec's deputy secretary-general, said the Obec will host a meeting tomorrow chaired by Winai Rodjai, head of Obec's senior experts on education, to tweak the national curriculum by placing greater emphasis on these subjects.

Mr Kamol said the plan to revise history in the national curriculum will mean it will now focus not only on historical eras or historical background, but also understanding Thailand's history.
