Some reports say the hike in fees would take tuition fees to up to 100 times that of normal public schools in September, when the 2017-2018 begins.

As planned, in the new school year, the maximum tuition fees will be VND4.3 million (US$190) for a student per month in high-quality kindergartens and primary schools; and VND4.5 million (US$198) in high-quality secondary and high schools.

In the previous academic year, 2016-17, the figures were VND3.9 million (US$171) and VND4.1 million (US$180) respectively, the Phu nu Viet Nam (Vietnamese Women) newspaper reported.

Meanwhile, it would cost just VND55,000- 110,000 (US$2.5-5) per student per month at all levels to study in a normal public school in Hanoi for the 2017-1018 academic year. Fees for the previous year were VND45,000-70,000 (US$2-3) for a student per month.

Additionally, public schools would also give priority to children living near their locations first, then other children. The policy aims to reduce overloading situation at public schools in the city.

It should have modern facilities in the classroom, labs, and kitchen as well as proper fire-fighting equipment. It should conduct more outdoor activities to improve students’ life skills and adopt teaching methods that encourage children to actively think for themselves.
