What the Expert Says:

Hello Anny,

This is a difficult question, yet not impossible.  I believe that in order to set up a better educational system for any country one needs to start with an organized developmental plan.  School administrators, scholars, teachers, and parents could all participate.  Fundamentals should be covered first for the educational curriculum across ages and grades.  In addition, the physical school buildings, transportation and budget needs to discussed and outlined.  Needs of the community should be assessed, as well, to be sure that children can attend school safely, with good health and with the ability to learn skills that will help foster community development and growth.  

You may wish to contact the American Association of School Administrators below to help you with your query.  

Good luck!

Hi Anny,
    This is a very deep question and it's great you're thinking progressively for the future of developing nations such as Cambodia.

Since the setbacks in Cambodian education during the Khmer rouge regime and various wars, literacy, instructors, and overall education programs suffered huge blows. Currently the lack of educators thanks to low incentive (insufficient curriculum and wages), low school attendance, and migration of well educated professionals to wealthier parts of the globe are huge factors which must be addressed. Furthermore, parents in rural areas expect their children to help with household duties and to generate income over school obligations.  

To be honest though I don't think a substantial answer can be given to even begin addressing these issues, but in a nut shell parents, ministry of education, and teachers in Cambodia (as well as globally) all need to improve if we are to make progress on a large scale in education.

Perhaps a focus on generating more infrastructure and economic stability through an emphasis on tech literacy could generate capital (Cambodia's largest industries are textiles and tourism) by creating new marketable skills. Creating tech centers could help teach valuable tech skills and help community/business interests (i.e create a webpage for a local business). Profits made could be allocated towards general education and would be a good start, but this is much easier said than done.

Hope this is mildly helpful!
