UNESCO published this book to commemorate Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's 4th cycle birthday. This book contains a lecture given by Her Royal Highness on the 15th Annual Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Day at Srinakharinwirot University, Bangkok, Thailand.

The lecture is a clear reflection of a genius in edition. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn analyzed the Pali and Sanskrit root of the Thai word for education, and gave many examples of student-centered teaching methods of Lord Buddha whose disciples from different backgrounds went on to reach enlightenment. She then elaborated on the 15 catagories of the disadvantaged. She defined and discussed education problems in each group. Her Royal Highness's insights on the theory and practice of education are evident in this lecture.
