Open Access Graduate Research Paper
"Prior to the 20th century, education was for royalty or for monks" (The Office of Prime Minister, 1978:263). Thailand had no formal school system. Education generally was undertaken as a family task. "The first formal schools were opened only about one hundred years ago" (Bennett, 1975 :26). However, as society became more complex, special institutions were developed to promote desired educational activities. Such developments have been gradual, and in large measure in reference to national interests.
