As per the Department of Construction’s report, there are 6,500 kids who are children of workers in nine industrial parks in the province.
It is predicted that by 2020, the number of workers’ children will be 9,500 kids meanwhile public preschools in industrial parks’ premises will be overcrowded.
Consequently, workers have no choice except sending their children to private preschools or illegal daycare with expensive tutor fee and high risk.
Accordingly, the Department of Construction petitioned from now to 2020, the province needs to build 12 schools more nearby industrial parks and after 2020, the number of schools must be 48 to meet demand.
Deputy Chairman of People’s Committee in Ba Ria- Vung Tau province Dang Minh Thong said that in addition to using state budget, the province will call for social contribution for building schools; accordingly, related agencies have to review land fund for the purpose.
