Obec supports homework cuts

The Office of the Basic Education Commission is ready to undertake a homework reduction plan in schools.

Amnat Wichayanuwat, secretary-general of the Office of Basic Education Commission (Obec), said the office has discussed plans to reduce homework and learning time, raised by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha. The ministry will prepare schools to be ready to reduce homework from the next term in December.

Some schools, he said, had raised concerns that secondary students have not had time to prepare for higher education and might need more self-learning time. Assessment methods are also under research. "It's not impractical. Advanced technology enables another channel of instruction, besides learning in te classroom," he said.
