Young People Urge Educational Improvement

More than 100 young people are urging the government to develop a policy on education and strengthen the young generation.

The recommendations come as part of a 13-point resolution adopted last week at the Angkor Youth Camp, a four-day retreat held in Siem Reap town. About 120 young people, ranging in age from 18 to 29, attended the camp.

The resolution, which is being sent to the prime minister, Na­tional Assembly, Senate and Council of Ministers, calls for quality education with an adequate budget allocation and an improvement in the curriculum to conform to international standards.

“We’d [also] like to suggest the government create a real youth development plan,” said Yong Kim Eng, president of the Khmer Youth Association, which organized the camp.
