13 p. 

The 1964 population of thailand was 30 million. Its economy is largely dependent on agriculture, but rapid industrial expansion is underway. The nation is divided into 12 educational regions controlled by an education officer. Preschool education of 1 to 3 years is noncompulsory. Elementary education of 4 years is compulsory, and this requirement is being extended 3 more years. Secondary education is in two streams. The general stream has three lower and two upper grades. The vocational stream has 1-, 2-, and 3-year courses. Technical education includes (1) degree courses in engineering and mineralogy at three universities, (2) 2-year diploma courses in subjects such as automobile, electrical, metal, and printing technologies, surveying, business administration, home economics, plumbing, drafting, farm mechanics, animal husbandry, and woodworking at technical institutes, and prevocational subjects such as agriculture, mechanics, building, commerce, secretarial science, dressmaking, boatbuilding, and printing at 180 schools. Technical teacher education is given at thewes vocational teachers college or five technical institutes. There is no organized apprenticeship system, but adult short courses are given. In-industry training is undeveloped. National planning is currently emphasizing higher education, but a project to develop 25 industrial and agricultural was started in 1966, and it is expected that a formal apprenticeship act will be enacted.
