Cambodia’s Education Ministry Tackling Low Reading and Writing Proficiency in Secondary Students

The Cambodian Ministry of Education launched a program for nearly 400,000 primary school students, after observing that third and seventh grade students were unable to read and write proficiently and performed poorly at math.

Minister of Education Hang Chuon Naron launched the “Komar Rien Komar Cheh” program on Monday. He said around 50 percent of 400,000 third grade children could not read properly and around 50 percent had low math scores.

He added around 30 to 40 percent of seventh grade students were poor at reading and writing, which is why it was highly likely they would dropout of school.
