From a survey on the quality of life of the Khmer Suay at Jaeng Maeng and Cham Villages, it was revealed that there were several problems that have shaped their quality of life. The first problem has been poverty due to low agricultural yields and incomes, lack of production capital, lack of new farming knowledge and experience to increase production yields, having too many children, being exploited by investors who had lent them money for occupational investment or household use, and fewer opportunities in career choice. The second problem was sickness, making the villagers unable to fully dedicate to their work. The sicknesses were due to unsanitary food, shelters, and poor medical treatments. The third problem was illiteracy or low education, making them unable to apply knowledge to improve their livelihoods. Low education has been the result of social environment that did not promote learning among the villagers. The last problem was lack of vocational enthusiasm or orderly social expressions. The villagers have not been interested in events happening around them and have been waiting for assistance from the state sector. These problems have been some of the causes that have impeded the development of the life quality of the villagers. In addition, the villagers have not realized the benefits of cooperation in carrying out development activities for their villages. As for educational needs to improve their life quality, it was found that the villagers required the needs differently, depending on various elements. However, previous career-oriented educational management or policies have not been translated into actual practice due to geographical restrictions and poverty (pp. 194, 197-198).
