18th UNESCO-APEID International Conference

In Pursuit of Quality Education: The Past, Present and Future

26-28 October 2016, Holiday Inn Silom, Bangkok, Thailand



What is quality education?

Some respondents to our survey said, quality education …


"… relates to learning outcomes which equipped all learners with necessary knowledge and skills to become economically productive."

"… is the provision of education service that helps learners acquire knowledge and skills that they want and give them joys of learning."

"… education that makes one stand for truth and justice."

"… is that which empowers an individual to transform the world for the benefit of the present and future members of society."


They also said the main challenge to quality education is related to teacher issues, followed by policy matters.

"The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations. Without such a right, the values of liberty, justice and equality will have no meaning."

- Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned
