Development of education and training in remote area

Tra Vinh and educational cause in ethnic-inhabited areas

Khmer ethnic people account for nearly 30% of the population of the coastal province of Tra Vinh. Therefore, the province has paid much attention to development of the education and training in ethnic-inhabited areas.

Thanks to this, the intellectual standards of ethnic people have improved step by step, thus contributing to the socio-economic development.

The eradication of illiteracy among children at the primary school age was completed in December 1998. Furthermore, Khmer ethnic people are studying Vietnamese and Khmer languages.

In addition, the system of schools has been fundamentally improved. There are about 900 schools, including 6 boarding ones. As a result, more ethnic children have an opportunity to go to school. In the 1992-1993 school year, less than 31,000 Khmer children went to school. In the 2005-2006 school year, the number of Khmer pupils was 61,000.

The province has also attached special importance to training ethnic teachers. Over the past five years, the total number of ethnic teachers has doubled, and now accounts for 20% of teachers in the province. Every year, the province presents 8-10% ethnic teachers with the title "good teacher".

Apart from teaching compulsory subjects, ethnic teachers have helped pupils implement policies of the party and laws of the state, especially the policy for great national unity, and helped them choose suitable careers.

According to Thach Rinh, deputy head of the provincial Department of Education and Training, the province has paid attention to synchronously implementing measures to develop education in Khmer-inhabited areas. The province launched a movement to get children to school at the proper age and not let them repeat classes and drop out.

Thanks to the effort, the number of Khmer pupils who drop out of school decreased from 5.62% in the 2000-2001 school year to 3.4% in the 2004-2005 school year.

The party and state have prioritised Khmer children to go to school without paying fee and reducing construction fee. This creats a breakthrough in training of human resources in ethnic-inhabited areas. Since 2000, 400 ethnic children have enrolled in universities and colleges, and 105 have come back to their hometowns to contribute to provincial socio-economic development.
