According to the ADB, Viet Nam has taken great strides toward improving the education system with attendance rates reaching 94% at primary schools and 51% for secondary schools (compared to 19% in 1993 for high schools).
It is predicted that Viet Nam will need some 58,000 qualified high school teachers by 2010.
Along with the training, the project, at a total cost of some US$43 million, will also collect and analyze educational data and modernize school facilities.
