    With just a few weeks of training, these three individuals were able to use existing resources combined with new knowledge to improve their productivity and incomes. But not all Asia-Pacific countries are on this path, not all reforms are effective, and there are marked differences between nations in levels of resources, educational participation, research, state controls and academic freedom. Secondary education has failed to provide any job-relevant skills, and as a result has served only as a transitory phase toward higher education and is not viable terminal level of education in these nations. This chapter addresses the achievements of higher education in five key ASEAN member states: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam — as well as their ambitions for the future.

    Thailand: educational equality and quality Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai This chapter primarily examines the issues of educational equality and quality in Thailand. A major political crisis in revealed the ongoing differences between elements of the old Resistance, the Catholic Church and the international donors, and, while stability has returned to the country, the legacies of colonialism and war are expected to have a major impact on the emerging education system in the foreseeable future. It also provides valuable lessons to be shared across nations. It is important to note that South Korea and Taiwan have few natural resources that would lead to this pesky trend.

    The critical role of education in social, economic, and political development—as a means of development as well as a measure of development—is widely recognized. Since Cambodia lags the rest of the region in most educational indicators, these basic programs are important to establish a good educational foundation for the nation. Countries in the South Asian region also experienced an explosion in the number of people attending school. The chapter critiques the official rhetoric surrounding these two major policy objectives and highlights various policy tensions. In sheer numbers, the South Asian subcontinent poses the most serious challenges in education: nearly half the adult illiterates of the world live in the subcontinent, the rate of participation in schooling is low, and the quality of education is poor.
