Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has urged Education Minister Nataphol Teepsuwan to solve problems with online learning, government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat told FM100.5 MCOT News Network on Tuesday (May 19).

She said that after the Cabinet approved delaying the start of the new semester for a month due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Prayut and Nataphol agreed to organise online learning so that students are prepared when schools open on July 1.

“Everything will return to normal after the opening of the new semester on July 1,” she said. “The PM has asked the education minister to resolve online learning issues, such as difficulties accessing the system, unaffordability of devices, the burden on parents, and student concentration.”

She added that after the new semester opens, the Education Ministry will focus on reducing study time in classrooms and relieving the burden on parents of sending children to school, which will also help to reduce traffic congestion.

“Online learning is only a [temporary] solution to the country’s education system during the Covid-19 situation,” she added.
