Thailand's progress in the education reform is, in general, at policy formation phase (Atagi, 2002: 35). It might be out of date.
The Thai government had successfully raised awareness of the need for the education reform not only in educators but in publics also(Atagi, 2002: 36).
Several education officials who work with teachers stated that teachers knew "the change was coming" (Atagi, 2002: 36).
One year after the enactment of the National Education Act B.E. 2542, the Chulalongkorn University researcher team reported that learning reform made fair progress at the policy level, but more support was needed at the operational level (Atagi, 2002: 37). Two years after the enactment of the National Education Act B.E. 2542, the same team reported that the progress of learning reform as impressive. At both the policy and implementation levels, significant work was completed, including: 326 master teachers; the national pilot project, core curriculum, research on new project (sources of lifelong learning and authentic assessment and evaluation); teacher and administrator training (Atagi, 2002: 37).
