VietNamNet Bridge - Hanoi has 13 high-quality state-owned schools, all of which began in a pilot program in 2014. The city plans to have 20 more high-quality state-owned schools at different education levels by 2020. The Hanoi People’s Council has approved a new resolution on the financial mechanism for high-quality state-owned education establishments. Under the resolution, the maximum tuition for high-quality state-owned schools, to be applied from the 2016-2017 to 2019-2020 academic year, will be increasing.

Hung will take the helm at Viettel from March 1 after serving tens of years in the post of deputy general director. He joined Viettel in 1989 when the group had just been established. Speaking to reporters upon the announcement of appointment, Hung said Viettel will march into new telecom areas to make the most from its available telecom infrastructure. Specifically, it will supply telecom services to healthcare and education sectors. If information technology (IT) application in education is boosted, people in remote and out-of-the-way areas can access high-quality education services like those in Hanoi or HCMC, Hung said. Viettel will bring cable TV services to remote areas so that teachers can give lessons via TV, allowing children to access good lectures. In the healthcare sector, Viettel can supply electronic medical records, helping doctors to have easier reference over their patients’ diseases. Another initiative being considered by Viettel is to introduce solutions for calculating power charges according to the hour. With a SIM card inserted into the electricity meter, the power supplier can calculate the charges at peak hours, Hung said. Regarding the over-the-top (OTT) service, Hung is known as an open-minded executive. When…... [read more]

As education is a top priority in terms of attracting foreign investment, Vietnam is making great progress with its education policies to meet the expectations of foreign investors, helping the sector to become more attractive. Bich Thuy reports. In response to recommendations made by foreign investors, the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) is revising several regulations on foreign investment and co-operation projects in the education and vocational training sector. Pham Chi Cuong, deputy head of the ministry’s International Co-operation Department, told VIR that “The revision is focusing on the limitation on the percentage of Vietnamese students, licensing-related issues, and the legal framework to extend the operation terms of educational institutions.” This move demonstrates the MoET’s determination to improve the business climate in the field and help to clear significant barriers to entry for foreigners wishing to invest in higher education in Vietnam. In fact, obstacles in the country’s education policies are among the main reasons that deter foreign direct investment (FDI) in the sector over recent years. Education remains in the bottom tier of sectors that receive foreign investment. As reported by the Ministry of Planning and Investment’s Foreign Investment Agency (FIA), as of June 13, 2016, Vietnam attracted over $735.84 million in FDI via 276 projects in the education and training sector. The US topped the list with $179.3 million, followed by Japan with $98.37 million, and Singapore $80.42 million. Taking this into consideration, education is still ranked 17th among the 18 sectors receiving FDI in Vietnam. Challenges…... [read more]

VietNamNet Bridge - HCM City vows to dissolve 866 unlicensed privately run nursery classes after a series of child abuse cases were discovered. However, this proves to be an "impossible mission." The report presented at the meeting between the HCM City Party Standing Committee and the representatives of 24 districts' local authorities some days ago showed that 84.2 percent of operational nursery classes cannot meet the standards to run. There are 419 state owned nursery schools in the city and 2,987 private run schools or classes. Of these, 1,959 schools and classes have operation licenses, while the other 1,028 classes don't have licenses, 84.2 percent of which cannot meet the standards. The city has instructed the 162 schools that can meet the standards to register their operation with the watchdog agencies, while it has decided to clear the other 866 classes which don't have the material facilities good enough to exist. The unlicensed schools employ 1,060 teachers, babysitters, including 284 teachers with pedagogical school degrees, 153 teachers who attended short term training courses and 286 teachers finishing high school. Meanwhile, the remaining 337 did not experience any training course.

However, it always is easier said than done. The Thu Duc district authorities have affirmed that it is now impossible to clear the 307 unlicensed…... [read more]
