The Central Highlands Steering Committee and its provinces have prioritised its resources to build new and upgrade school facilities in rural areas to improve learning conditions for ethnic minority children.

As a result, the total number of general schools and nurseries in the region has increased to 3,132.

The provinces have also paid special attention to consolidating temporary schools and classrooms, spending over 1,566 billion VND (7.4 million USD) since 2008 to upgrade 52,851 classrooms, leaving only 17,179 temporary classrooms in the region.

Dak Lak province is leading the region in the construction of school facilities for children, with an average of 967 new classrooms built every year.-VNA
