Thai students well below global average in reading, science and maths: study

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Thai students well below global average in reading, science and maths: study

Post by phuketrichard » Fri Dec 06, 2019 10:04 am

IN regards other thread concerning thai students...
A new study shows that Thai students are consistently underperforming in the classroom.
According to the 2018 OECD Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) report ─ which measures the ability of 15-year-olds in science, reading and mathematics, Thai students scored below the international average in all three categories.
Regionally, only Indonesia and the Philippines performed worse than Thailand.
However, other ASEAN school systems including Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore all out performed Thailand.
Meanwhile, other Asian school systems featured heavily at the top of the rankings.

China was ranked in 1st place in all three categories, followed by Singapore, which ranked 2nd overall, Macao was in 3rd and Hong Kong in 4th.
Cambodia not listed;

That's a pretty poor showing for Thailand.

It seems their pilots are not very well regarded. This article was taken from the aviation news thread here:

I see some schools in PP now have STEM as part of their curriculum. Kudos.
