Southeast Asia's education systems, while at different stages of development, face similar trends and challenges.
The demand for Quality education in Southeast Asia has consistently outstripped supply.

The widespread use of supplementary education – tutoring outside the formal education system – including for primary school students, reflects this trend. Mid-range private schooling options – typically with larger class sizes and fewer facilities than international schools – are gaining popularity.
