Analyzing the Implementation of Anti-corruption Education Curriculum Guidelines in Basic Education Institutions in Thailand


The article aims to 1. Analyzing the anti-corruption education curriculum in line with the National Strategy for Corruption Prevention and Eradication, Phase 3 (2017-2021). 2. Synthesizing the implementation of anti-corruption education curriculum in basic education institutions. The research methodology involves a combination of document analysis and in-depth interviews. Research has found that there are six approaches for implementing the curriculum in educational institutions: 1. Adding supplementary courses. 2. Integrating with the curriculum of social studies, religion, and culture. 3. Integrating with other subject areas. 4. Incorporating it into student development activities. 5. Organizing extracurricular activities. 6. Incorporating it into the school's lifestyle. The monitoring results from The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) show that out of the 56,283 basic-level educational institutions, 54,529 (96.88%) have adopted the curriculum. Despite achieving significant quantitative outcomes in the effectiveness of the anti-corruption curriculum's implementation, qualitative dimensions remain inadequately addressed in the quest to construct a society resilient to corruption. Consequently, this article proffers a set of recommendations. It urges educational administrators to heighten awareness of the critical role played by anti-corruption education and advocates for mutual understanding among educators to minimize subject overlap. Schools are encouraged to provide resources, including media, equipment, budgets, and support for extracurricular learning. Educational administrators, teachers, and staff are called upon to set exemplary standards and foster a positive atmosphere, while schools are urged to establish collaborative networks with pertinent organizations, fostering both academic and managerial exchange.
