In Thailand, officials plan to reduce instructional time and reform school curriculum to include a focus on project-based learning. Officials say they are about six months away from finalising details of the plan. Currently, secondary-school students in Thailand have about 1,200 instructional hours each school year, and primary-school students have about 1,000. Officials say plans call for cutting 200 instructional hours from the calendar, freeing up more of students' time for extracurricular activities.
