The most serious problems with the Vietnamese education system and how it can be improved
By Tran Thi Ha Phuong, B.Bus3 – ISB University
Education plays an important role with each country, especially with the economic development, which is the same in Vietnam. After two wars of aggression, the Vietnamese economy was affected seriously so the Provisional Government of Vietnam identified that at this time, the development of education is the first priority. In a country, if the rate of educated person is high, it means the indicators of economic development will also go up. The high quality workforce who is better skilled and trained in an accurate education will be a motivation for future growth. According the statistic data of Vietnam in recent years, the economy has had a remarkable performance. GDP growth increased 8.5% in 2006, 8.2% in 2007 and 8.5% in 2009. Growth in 2010 is projected at 6.5 percent according to the same source ( from The education in Vietnam, Christopher Runckel, Business-in-Asia.com). Education has the meaning with not only the development of economy but also the Vietnamese culture and society. It is seen as a progressive way and contributes to social reforms. Therefore, the government of Vietnam has set the priority of education in terms of its budget. Many recent years, education occupies approximately 20% of all state budget expenditures and accounts for 5.5% of GDP (source: Department of Finance and Planning, MOET, 2008). However, now, the Vietnamese education system has several serious problems that can make bad effects not only at present but even in the future, if the government don’t care and find the accurate solutions to improve in time. At this time, the journals and the channels of information usually mention to three problems which is considerate the most prominent than the others are the degradation of quality in the education and training, the corruption and the violence in school. These problems are puzzling the Vietnamese educate managers who making attempt to improve the current situation. The first problem is degradation of quality in the education and training which is most dangerous because it can affect badly the quality of human resources. The degradation derives from many reasons such as the shortage of school material, the curriculum more theory than practice, a lecturer-centered method of teaching and learning … Beginning with the education for children in the nursery and the primary school, under the regulations promulgated by The Ministry of Education and Training (MOET), there must not be more than 35 students in every class which must be taken care by two teachers. In general, each nursery class always has the number of pupils over the limit even there are classes that have 50-70 pupils, especially in big cities such as Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh. With this situation, many nursery teachers expressed that they had to work hard and get stressful and strenuous because of the overloading classes. They were always worried about accidents which may happen to the kids, especially at lunch time or break time (from: Nursery school getting more and more overloaded, Tien Phong, sunflowermission.org). Obviously, this situation must be eliminated as soon as possible. Dang Huynh Mai, Vice President of Vietnam Association for Protection of Children’s Rights said that it can be seen the existence of the classes that have the numbers of students exceeding the limits as an action that violates the children’s rights and the kids need to enjoy a better care and learning environment. Besides, the current curriculum is not appropriate though it has been reform several times before. Many parents who have their kids in the primary school complained that because of the heavy curriculum, they had to hire tutors to give extra lessons to their children. (from: Heavy primary education curricula make parents worried sick, sunflowermission.org). The education and training in...
...Essay #1: Education
When it comes to education, many people automatically have a negative reaction; especially when discussing the United States’ educational system. Whether it is grade school or a higher education, most people would agree that something needs to be changed. However, finding the specific “what” that should be changed in the educationsystem is hard, because it’s failure is a combination of many things, rather than one direct problem. As citizens, we know that flaws are expected in any sort of process/system and the educationsystem, being so vast, is bound to have many issues in its own. Authors and scholars from around the world, such as Jonathan Kozol, David Orr, Sir Ken Robinson and many others, help present these flaws to the public through intense persuasive and informational writing/speaking. Data shows that the United States has been and continues to fall behind other countries like Finland, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, and Korea in typical testing of subjects like mathematics, science, and reading (Husén 455). Standards of education are varying from country to country and this is a direct reflection of differing goals per country on national scale, in terms of education. The United States has seemingly lower overall standards of education, as well as various...

A Problem in the American EducationSystem
In 2010, only 34.8% of all 67,924 college students graduated in four years in California. After high school, many students look towards the future. Whether going into the military, starting work, or beginning life as a college student students make their own choice. College students, however face many struggles through their times in college which leads them to quitting and just abandon their life as a student at a college. College dropouts are a problem in the American educationsystem. This problem will have dire effects on those dropouts as well as other aspects such as financial and health problems. Many factors ultimately push the students off their path to a bachelor’s degree and end their dreams of ever becoming a doctor or maybe even a businessman. Along with those causes, there are serious consequences for those college dropouts.
One effect that happens when a college student drops out of school would be that a huge debt must be paid back and since they dropped out it turn to be a wasted investment. Students looking to go to college, then dropout have no answer to pay the money back which they were hoping to find a career with a college degree they wanted. Students often put a lot of money into college, thus putting them into debt. When the...
VIETNAMESE BUSINESS LAW
Compare and contrast the internal governance structure of a two or more member limited liability company and that of a joint stock company.
The following figures are the Management Structure of a two or more member limited liability company (LLC) and joint stock company (JSC):
Source: PhD Bui Xuan Hai (2008), Internal Governance Structure in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh University of Law, Vietnam.
To have better understanding about internal governance structure of LLC and JSC, we compare characteristics of both companies based on the following criteria (Articles mentioned in the following table are according to Law on Enterprise of Vietnam, 2005):
Table 1.1: Compare and contrast the internal governance structure of LLC and JSC.
In conclusion, the Enterprise Law 2005 provides different fixed internal governance structures for 2 company types: LLC and JSC as well as other enterprises. An internal governance structure often consists of four constituents: The general meeting, a BOM, CEO and Controlling Board with statutory powers and functions of each constituent. Furthermore, powers and duties of each corporate governance body of an internal governance structure are mandatory under the Law on Enterprise 2005 and can be expanded but not decreased by the company’s constitution.

...Problems and Issues in the Philippine Educational System
1. Colonial historiography.
Most of the past and present teachers, book authors, and Social Studies consultants give heavier premium to the history of the colonizers in the Philippines, and not to the history of Filipinos. Mostly, this has been the case in the teaching of History subjects from the elementary to tertiary levels and will most likely perpetuate in the next generations to come. The history of the Filipino people and the colonial history of the Philippines are two different topics altogether.
2. Internationalization of the division of labor.
To a certain extent, the Philippine educational system conditions its students to be skillful in arithmetic and computer literacy, fluent in foreign languages (specifically English and Nihonggo), and docile in order to serve as workers of the transnational businesses of the advanced, capitalist countries. Take the case of the call center phenomenon in the Philippines, India and other developing states.
3. Emasculation and demoralization of teachers.
Teachers, more often than not, are victimized by the over-worked and under-paid policy of the system of the past and present dispensations. This leads to the emasculation and demoralization of their ranks. This probably explains why the teaching profession is not attracting the best and the brightest from the crop of students anymore. Expectedly, this...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

In the process of development of country, education is always put on the priority. Nowadays, education in Vietnam meet a lot of problems need to be solved. Including, school fee, infrastructure and curriculum are three main problems make student’s difficulties and make quality of education not good at all.
The first problem is school fee, which increases quickly in every year. When the development in every area does not balance, school fee is not a problem for the rich but it becomes a trouble of students, who live in poor provinces. They do not have enough money to pay, parents must work a lot and save all their earning for their children’s school fee but it is still not enough for a long course. A lot of students must delay or drop out of school because of living condition. If students want to study continuously, they have to work part time. They can’t focus on studying, so their result may be affected. There will be a big waste of Vietnameseeducation if good students can’t study more. Government should care more about school fee, about poor students and correct education policy in each region to decrease a number of students drop out of schools.
The second problem is infrastructure. Schools don’t have enough infrastructures for...
...In Malaysia, there are many educationsystems that had been used such as Primary School Old Curriculum (KLSR), Primary School Integrated Curriculum (KBSR) and Primary School Standard Curriculum (KSSR). KBSR is one of the education policy that had brings many achievement and successful in educationsystem. In addition, to improve current educationsystem, KBSR makes few changes in two aspects which are curriculum and school culture. In each category, there are its own aim and target to develop.
In order to develop children as learners through KBSR, teachers must grounded into four principles which are integrated approach, holistic development of individual, one education for all and life-long learning. The aim of KBSR want to provide primary school pupils with language and arithmetic skills that enable them to communicate and solve problem in daily life for their future. Furthermore, the changes of KLSR to KBSR are not only in curriculum but also in school environment. KBSR was implemented for trial in 1982 and a year after that which is 1983 it is fully implement in all primary schools.
First of all, teachers or educators must know the definition of twenty-first (21st) learners because all of them will face students from that live in 21st century or known as generation Y and Z. According to Barnett (2010) “Twenty-first-century learning means...

CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
Harare metropolitan province is under ministry of primary and secondary education which specialises in educating every child in Zimbabwe without considering race and or disability. The ministry is currently using a traditional way of enrolling form one pupils. This system is creating unnecessary increase in parent’s expenditure. Parents have to travel from one school to the other searching for form one places for their children.
Most of the schools even charge a non refundable 20dollars as entrance test fee per child. The ministry is now going through a phase of change from the above mentioned old system to the new system. The system will improve the current working conditions, increase efficiency and convenience and also lessen the tiresome of hoping from school to school in search for form one places. The new system will record all the boarding and day form one places for all schools in the Harare metropolitan province, name of the schools, fees to be paid, locality, subjects being offered, school facilities being offered, school structure and...
