Thai, Laos private schools seek partnership

Pattaya will help private-school educators bring more Laotian students to Thailand for vocational training.

Officials from both Thailand and Laos’ offices of private education and Lao schools signed an agreement July 4 at the Diana Garden Resort with former MP Poramet Ngampichet, representing city hall, and a large group of private- and non-formal trade schools offering educations in dance, beauty salons and nursing.

The Correlation ASEAN Private Education group suggested the memorandum of understanding that will allow students to secure a path to carry on with private studies in either country.

The impetus for the agreement is the Thai government’s Eastern Economic Corridor initiative, which aims to bolster vocational schools to develop specialized workers in high-tech industries.

While Thailand’s education system is woeful by western standards, it’s still better than what is available in Laos and the Laotian officials said there is substantial interest among students across the border in studying in Pattaya.
