The Office of the Basic Education Commission will spend Bt208.23 million to repair and renovate the residences of public school teachers around the country, the office’s chief said.

 

Dr Suthep Chitayawong, secretary general of the Office of the Basic Education Office, said the office has surveyed official residences of public schools under the office as ordered by the Education Minister Nataphol Teepsuwan and found that 1,998 residences need to be renovated.

 

The education minister wants the office to repair and rebuild all teachers’ residences that have outside toilets to make them safer and more convenient. 

 

Suthep said the renovations will be carried out in two phases. In the first phase, 1,370 residences will be repaired at a cost of Bt147.78 million and the remaining 682 in the second phase at a further cost of Bt60.45 million.
