PANO - VVMF delegation continued its visit to Quang Tri and on January 14 th joint local Vietnamese officials to hold a ceremony to officially dedicate a newly renovated and expanded primary school in Trieu An Commune. VVMF became involved when it was approached by officials at the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO), VVMF's in-country sponsor, about providing assistance for the Tuong Van Elementary School in Trieu An Commune. The existing school was not large enough to accommodate all of the students at one time, so a split school day had to be instituted. Also, the road leading to the school often flooded during rainy season, making it dangerous and nearly impossible for the students to attend. In addition, the building itself was aging and in need of repair. VVMF broke ground for the new school in February 2009. While the school's renovation has been completed and the school has been in use since last fall, the dedication was timed to coincide with the visit … [Read more...] about VVMF dedicates renovated primary school in Quang Tri

However, the tentative changes, which once raised worries among students and parents, were later canceled. That explains why students still have doubts about the feasibility of the renovation plan which was made public just some days ago. Under the latest plan, the current “three common thing” scheme (common examinations, common exam marks, i.e the marks are recognized by all schools, and common … [Read more...] about Renovating enrolment scheme, when?
Renovating syllabus, changing the teaching and learning methods are the things that historians believe need to be done immediately in order to “rescue a new Vietnamese generation bad at history” An abnormal thing happened at the university entrance exams--most of the examinees got low marks for history exam, while thousands of students got zero. The information has stirred up the public, while historians have warned about a new Vietnamese generation which is bad at history, and experts have blamed this on the unreasonable teaching method. The topic has become even hotter after Minister of Education and Training (MOET) Pham Vu Luan said on local newspapers, that low marks in history should be seen as an inevitable trend in the digital era, when students need to focus on learning economics and informatics. Luan’s comments have been criticized by historians. Dr Pham Ngoc Tram from the History Faculty of the HCM City University for Social Sciences and Humanity, … [Read more...] about People and historians call for renovating teaching method
With $1 billion, Vietnam can change its system of bureaucratic civil servants into a contingent of enthusiastic and qualified people, said a senior expert from the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM). The comprehensive administrative reform program was implemented in 2001-2010. During this period, the government’s number of agencies reduced from 48 to 30, including 22 ministries and ministerial-level agencies. The number of departments felt by 28, but the number of general departments rose by 18 and the number of bureaus increased by 22. Le Viet Thai, head of the CIEM’s Economic Institution Department, who chairs the research project entitled “Strategic vision on governmental institute and implementation roadmap”, says that the administrative apparatus is cumbersome and ineffective because tasks and responsibility are not clearly defined. Thai tells Tien Phong Daily about the project. What does your group discover after researching … [Read more...] about US$1 billion enough to renovate Vietnam’s civil servants?
