On the occasion of the beginning of the new school year, Minister of Education and Training Pham Vu Luan issued a directive requesting that schools nationwide conduct their own scrutiny of educators and administrators.

The availability of education to all, illiteracy eradication, enhancement of morale and lifestyles for students should be prioritised, according to him. His other suggestion was that foreign language training be emphasised and improved.

State President Truong Tan Sang sent a letter to educators, students and parents nationwide, emphasing the necessity for improving the quality of education at all levels, and reforming education policy so that the system will be more beneficial for students and society. Part of this would be focusing on education in mountainous regions.
