Somkiat Tangkitvanich's commentary in ''Education system ills setting up future failure'' (BP, March 27) is very valid and is a matter close to my heart.
It seems no one at the policy level is concerned nor taking any serious action. Often it makes we wonder about their sincerity in wanting to have better educated Thai people-_ because if that were the case, people could start thinking for themselves and would not be easily led/misled.
The current Education Minister Pongthep Thepkanchana, in my opinion, is a capable person, and I only wish he would put his heart into his work to bringing about educational reforms with substance, perhaps incorporating Mr Somkiat's comments. Then he would leave behind a legacy that truly benefits the Thai nation in the future.
