The Department of Education and Training in Ho Chi Minh City has sent its document to its bureaus in districts instructing the implementation of the new school models for the academic 2015-2016.
According to the document, in the academic year 2014-2015, 52 primary schools in the city’s suburban districts have applied new school models and 103 other primary schools have replicated some parts of the new school model in different level but they still ensure the principle that it has been carried out with the parents’ agreement.
To continue the model effectively in the new academic year 2015-2016, the Department asked its bodies to work out plans to teach listening, reading, speaking and writing skills of Vietnamese language for first graders who are going to be second graders in the summer vacation so that they can make presentation before friends in class as per the new model.
In addition, the Department also asked schools to increase information of the new model to parents in order to get their agreement.
Accoding to this model, students do not have to buy as many as text books except for text books for music, art and handicrafts.
