Size Matters.  The 5.11 EP Class of Phitsanulok Pittayakom School, Phitsanulok
Teachers in Thailand  have another reason to be happy if the plan of cutting class sizes in both primary and secondary levels pushes through.

Starting next term, the Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC) will limit each class from a maximum of 50 students in a class to 40 in the secondary schools and 30 in the kindergartens and primary schools. 

However, OBEC Secretary-General Kamol Rodklai told Bangkok Post that top-ranked schools might not be able to adopt this new policy until the next five years because of their popularity.

Kamol also said that the latest policy from OBEC is designed to improve the performance of the students and enhance the quality of education in Thailand
