You know how they say you’re never too old to go back to school? If you’re skeptical of that statement, look no further than Kimlan Jinakul, a 91-year-old Thai woman who just earned a bachelor’s degree in human and family development from Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University near Bangkok. “If we do not study, do not read, do not know, then we won’t be able to speak and make sense,” said Jinakul, who studied for 10 years before receiving her diploma Wednesday from Thailand’s king.
