Cao Bang (VNA) – The northern mountainous province of Cao Bang has been recognised to have met standards on education universalisation and illiteracy eradication in 2017.

A delegation of the Ministry of Education and Training led by Deputy Minister Nguyen Huu Do made the recognition during a working session with the province’s authorities on April 13.

Specifically, Cao Bang has fulfilled requirements for preschool universalisation, and for primary education universalisation at second level. The province also satisfied requirements for junior high school education universalisation and illiteracy eradication both at first level.

The standards cover the quantity and quality of teachers, along with teaching and learning facilities and equipment.

Also in 2017, eight districts of Cao Bang completed illiteracy eradication at first level and five achieved the second level.

Besides, all communes and towns of the province had community learning centres.

To build up the achievement, Cao Bang will begin the assessment and classification of different education models while working to enhance the capacity and effectiveness of the network of continuing education centres.

The province will also assess the outcomes of a project on building a learning society in 2012-2020.

Deputy Minister Nguyen Huu Do hailed the provincial administration for taking effective measures in popularising education and reforming teaching methods for better education quality and sustained outcomes of education universalisation.

He recommended that the province prepare resources to build facilities serving the development of a learning society and pay more attention to strengthening community learning centres.-VNA
