Faculty of Education visited the bilingual school system at the first bilingual school in Thailand and the first Thinking School in Asia.
September 12, 2019 – Faculty of Education of Khon Kaen University led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sumalee Chaijaroen, Dean of the faculty, went to Amnuaysil School to exchange knowledge related to bilingual school education with administrators of Amnuaysil School, the first bilingual school and the prototype of this kind of school. The objectives of this visit were to upgrade the curriculum standard and the management of the International Section of Khon Kaen University Demonstration School so that it will become a prototype of bilingual school, to prepare new generation of youths for the Isan region, and to build a chance for young students to have access to high quality academic institution. The instructional system at Amnuaysil School is similar to that of England with administration system and teacher development with the Iinking School Network of England. This learning and sharing therefore led to cooperation of the two parties to build a quality educational system for Thai people. The ultimate goal is to “Prepare Thai children to hold Thainess identity, while the abilities are comparable to the international standard.”
