Thailand Education Ministry Launches Safe School Project
Thailand's Education Ministry launches "Safe School, Towards 21st Century Thai Children Lifestyle" project to combat drug use among students.

According to the Daily News report on May 21, the Executive Secretary of the Thai Ministry of Education, Suthep Kaengsantia, revealed that the ministry has launched the "Safe School, Towards the Lifestyle of Thai Children in the 21st Century" project. The Secretary emphasized that the initiative aims to promote officials' responsibilities in this area, requiring them to assist students and collaborate with local relevant agencies such as police, local public health officials, local anti-drug officials, to prevent students from getting involved in drugs or other crimes.


In response to the current trend and spread of e-cigarette use among teenagers, the Ministry of Education has issued a formal notice to all schools, requiring them to take this issue seriously and treat it as illegal behavior. Students found in possession of e-cigarettes on school grounds will face penalties. Recently, I proposed a modification to the Ministry of Education's anti-drug policy regulations to classify e-cigarettes as controlled substances. Therefore, students who bring e-cigarettes to school will be subject to penalties equivalent to those for drugs. The proposed amendment has been submitted to the Royal Legislative Office for review and is expected to take effect within this month, serving as guidance for all schools.
