According to collegesanduniversitiesinusa, the educational history of Thailand dates back to the 13th century when Buddhist temples provided instruction in religious and moral values. In the 19th century, King Mongkut established modern schools with a more secular curriculum and set up a system of primary and secondary education with English as the language of instruction. During this period, higher education was largely limited to those who could afford private tuition. In 1921, the Thai government began providing free public education for all children aged 6-14. This marked a major milestone in Thailand’s educational history and increased access to education for many children who would otherwise have been unable to attend school. In 1960, the government established a national university system with seven universities offering degrees in various disciplines such as law, medicine, engineering and business administration. This was followed by the establishment of other universities throughout the country which offered specialized courses such as agriculture and veterinary science. In recent years, Thailand has seen an increase in investment in education as well as reforms aimed at improving quality and accessibility. The government has also implemented measures such as free textbooks for primary school students and scholarships for disadvantaged students from low-income backgrounds. These initiatives have helped to improve access to quality education for many Thais and have contributed to an increase in literacy rates across the country. In 2009, Thailand was a constitutional monarchy with the King of Thailand serving as head of state. The Prime Minister was the head of government and had executive power. The country was divided into 76 provinces, each with its own local government. Thailand’s foreign policy in 2009 focused on promoting regional cooperation and strengthening ties with its neighbors in Southeast Asia. Its main partners were China, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar. Thailand also had close ties with the United States and other Western countries through ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation), and other international organizations. In 2009, Thailand faced tensions with neighboring countries such as Myanmar over issues related to human rights violations and refugees fleeing across the border. However, overall the country maintained good relations with its neighbors while preserving its independence at home. The Thai economy in 2009 was largely driven by exports such as textiles, electronics, and agricultural products. In addition to trade relations with other countries in the region, Thailand also benefited from initiatives like AGOA (African Growth and Opportunity Act) which promoted economic development through increased access to markets in Africa for Thai exports.
