This report reviews Thailand's campaign for education for all, which is supported by United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). By focusing on two specific projects, the report attempts to discern how well this elaborate system of cooperation is working. The first case study in the report highlights two responses to the need to promote early childhood care and development; teaching child-rearing skills within the family and within a community setting; and establishing universal preschool education. The second case study looks at the policies designed to encourage students finishing primary school to stay in school through the lower secondary level. The report offers recommendations that grow out of the case studies, including expanding basic education to nine years, augmenting preschool education, and concentrating the administrative elements into one single organization.
