UNICEF's Child-Friendly Schools in Thailand: A Case Study
UNICEF (September 2009)
"In addition to promoting CFS in conventional schools, UNICEF began to develop child-friendly alternative learning centres tailored to the needs of specific underprivileged groups, such as migrants from Myanmar and ethnic communities speaking Thai as a second language. To help the Royal Thai Government identify the pockets of greatest need, in 2004, UNICEF supported the development and piloting of tools and methodology for a Thai national education survey – based on the education module of UNICEF’s Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey."
This collection of case studies from a number of countries captures the richness of experiences UNICEF and its partners accumulated in the past fifteen years through applying the CFS approach in their work on quality of education.
