After nine years, the education sector has gained achievements including more communes having educational equipment and facilities, most children at the age of six going to the first grade especially children from low-income families and children with disabilities.
Nonetheless, investment in schools is still low; therefore, many communes have not been recognized new –style rural communes because they failed to achieve this standard.
When it comes to illiteracy eradication, local administrations and residents have not fully realized that obtaining a quality education is the foundation to creating sustainable development. Moreover, sluggish construction of schools leads to shortage of preschools in crowded residential areas.
Furthermore, there has been a disparity between the rates of preschoolers in different regions.
Speaking at the conference, Deputy Minister of Education and Training Le Hai An assigned new tasks to the education sector including more investment in facilities and address the shortcomings of the last time as well as enhance supervision to help obtaining targets. Additionally, the sectors should avoid achievement addiction on the way to be recognized to be new-styled rural commune.
