Developing Anti-Corruption Curriculum

5 August 2017 (Readers 847)

 
The Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission is accelerating the development of an anti-corruption curriculum that can be used at all educational levels in awareness-raising against corruption practices.
 
The curriculum will also be used as guidance to provide training for state officials, members of civil society, and other interested organizations. It will instruct learners and trainees on how to separate public interest from personal gain.
 
The curriculum aims to introduce zero tolerance principles to bribery and corruption, so that corrupt behavior is considered unacceptable. It will be in line with the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, Phase Three, 2017-2021, which seeks to create a society with zero tolerance for corruption.
 
The vision of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, Phase Three, is "Zero Tolerance and Clean Thailand, aimed at establishing an international standard of transparency in the country. In the next five years, Thailand is set to become a country of high moral standards where corruption is no longer tolerated by the people or society.
 
The Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission intends to have the anti-corruption curriculum included as part of the Ministry of Educations curriculum, ranging from kindergarten education to tertiary education.
 
It recently held a workshop on the anti-corruption curriculum to prepare contents that would be suitable for all target groups at different educational levels and ages of students.
 
The working out of the anti-corruption curriculum will be completed by the end of 2017, and it will be used at all educational institutions in the first semester of the 2018 academic year.
