Son has submitted to National Assembly a report on Resolution 41 on questions at the second session related to education and training.

Regarding the shortage, especially in mountainous areas, the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) has reviewed the management of payroll, recruitment and use of teachers and managerial officers. It has continued instructing localities to strictly observe regulations on recruitment and streamline the workforce of the educational sector.

MOET has joined forces with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to direct localities to check figures, report the situation and propose the recruitment of new teachers in accordance with a roadmap to be implemented from now to 2026.

The Politburo has assigned recruitment of 65,980 teachers in 2022-2026, including 27,850 teachers for public schools in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Son has asked provincial and municipal authorities to urgently organize recruitment of 27,850 teachers, with priority given to the recruitment of teachers of new subjects to serve the 2018 new general education program, and teachers for preschools in economically difficult areas.

MOET has said that it would create a circular to replace the inter-ministerial Circular No06/2015. The new legal document won’t set a limit for the number of teachers per class, so that localities have the right to recruit and hire teachers to ensure the new general education program.

The ministry will redefine the teacher/student ratios for different regions; submit to the government a plan on amending the law governing teachers, and put this work in the 15th National Assembly’s law building program.

Regarding special policies to ensure benefits for managerial officers, teachers and workers at preschools that have had to overcome the consequences caused by Covid-19, Son said his ministry has checked the policies and advised the government to issue Resolution 103/2022 on policies to support managerial officers, teachers and workers at non-public preschools and primary schools facing difficulties because of Covid-19.

As of August 15, VND170 billion had been disbursed for non-public preschools to help them overcome difficulties caused by the pandemic (the planned figure is VND1.4 trillion for the 2022-2023 academic year).

MOET has begun the plan on re-arranging administrative units and non-business public units under the ministry, striving for a 10 percent cut.

The ministry has reorganized higher education establishments and pedagogical schools in accordance with network reprogramming.

The Vietnam Institute of Educational Sciences, Education and Times newspaper and Education journal will continue to be non-business units under the ministry.
