About the Book
Doctoral dissertation, based on 2 years of field work in Songkla, Yala and Bangkok Thailand, it analyses the processes of implementation of a complex innovation in the Thai educational bureaucracy.
My purpose in this study is to fill a gap in current understanding of nonformal education in Thailand. In conducting the research for this study, I wanted to go beyond the official statements of government policy, and learn how policy makers and administrators in the Thai government's Adult Education Division cope with the daily problems of administration of nonformal education programmes.
