The first fruitful achievement The story begins with 23 year old teacher Le Van Tu, now one of the youngest Chemistry specialist teachers at the famous Phan Boi Chau high school in Nghe An province. Before starting his teaching career, Tu was one of the most outstanding students for four consecutive years honoured with a Swing for the Kids scholarship. The story of his endless efforts and resulting success has fueled hope in children just starting out with Swing for the Kids. Born and raised in Nam Dan district, Nghe An province, in a family facing hardship in an area of land affected by severe weather from Laos, for Tu, the path of education seemed to be closed.

At the plenary session (Source: VNA) Hanoi (VNA) – Members of the National Assembly’s Judicial Committee have agreed on the need to amend the 2007 Law on Amnesty to make it fall in line with the 2013 Constitution and other related laws, and to ensure the meaning of amnesty. The consensus was reached during a plenary session of the committee which was held in Hanoi on April 5 to examine the draft revision to the Law on Amnesty.

Deputies said the amnesty results over the past years showed the effectiveness of … [Read more...] about Law reform needed to ensure meaning of amnesty: NA deputies
