The Royal Intent
“Members of the royal family; from my children to people in the lowest part of society will be given an equal opportunity to education. It does not matter whether they are aristocrats or commoners. Therefore, I wish to state here that education in our country will be my priority and that I will try to promote to its success.”
King Chulalongkorn’s speech delivered at a gathering of members of the royal family and officials during his visit to Phra Tamnak Suan Kularb School in 1884.
