Specifically, the island is seeking 29 teachers including 12 preschool teachers, six primary teachers , 11 teachers for junior and senior high school
Though Vo Thi Sau School is in need of English, IT teachers and teachers teaching lessons for citizenship education, no application has been submitted because teachers’ salary in Con Dao is equal to their peers in mainland; hence, it is unattractive to teachers.
The provincial Department of Education said that it has proposed educational institutions in mainland to send their voluntary teachers to the island. Appointed teachers will be given travel and accommodation fee plus other bonus.
