The Ministry of Education and Training sent a document asking its sub-divisions to enhance supervision to private educational facilities after nursemaids at a preschool in Ho Chi Minh City’s Thu Duc District have been accused of frequently abusing and torturing preschoolers.
The Ministry said that various types of tortures used by the nursemaids including beating, strangling, pressing heads on the ground, holding noses with towels, slapping faces have badly affected children’s health condition and mental growth as well as caused public concerns.
Accordingly the Ministry ordered departments of education and training in coordination with local people’s committees to dress the current situation in private preschools in districts.
Education authorities should publicize licensed private, unlicensed and suspended educational institutes so that parents can best select the most suitable educational establishment for their children.
The Ministry also requested departments to provide training courses as well as professional ethics and love for children to managers and teachers of private schools. Local authorities should pay regular visits to private establishments to discover wrongdoings as well as strictly suspend these violating facilities from opening.
