Ministry urges schools not to collect “extra fees”

The Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) has requested all public educational establishments to refrain from collecting fees other than tuition fees in the 2017-18 school year. MoET ask schools to impose tuition fees not exceeding the tuition fee cap regulated by the Government. - Illustrative Photo vov.vn The school year officially starts at the beginning of September. Extra fees have been a lingering problem for students at schools of all levels in Việt Nam. In many cases, extra fees imposed on students, such as fees for upgrading classroom facilities, fees to renovate school infrastructure and fees for extra classes, far exceed the actual tuition fee. According to the new request, the MoET also asked schools to impose tuition fees not exceeding the tuition fee cap regulated under Government’s Decree 86/2015/NĐ-CP, which prescribes collection and management of tuition fees of educational establishments under the national educational system. Schools are requested to abide by MoET’s policy for tuition fee exemption, reduction and support from the 2015-16 school year to the 2020-21 school year. They should set up transparent in-house expenditure mechanisms and publicise them so that staff, students and other organisations can monitor their activities, the MoET said. Localities are responsible for monitoring educational establishments under their management and can order disciplinary actions against organisations or individuals violating the regulations.
