VietNamNet Bridge – A lot of bad things occurred in recent days, showing the “dark corner” of the Vietnamese education.


The national television VTV reported that an 11th grader of a high school in Phu Tho province who could not talk after she became the victim in a school violence case.

Quyen Thi Phuong Ha, the student, was assaulted in September 2014 because of the misunderstanding. The girl could not talk because of the traumas.

Ha and her family’s lives changed so much over the last six months. Ha had to stay off school to follow medical treatment, while her mother had to work hard to get money for treatment.

On March 13, the parents of Nguyen Thi Huyen T, 5, came to the kindergarten in Nghi Van Commune of Nghi Loc District in Nghe An, asking the school board of management to apologize for what the school’s teacher did to their daughter.

They said the teacher pulled their daughter’s ear so strongly that this caused bleeding. Thanh, the mother, said she discover a 3 cm scratch on the girl’s helix when the girl returned from the kindergarten.

A video has been posted on internet, showing a group of male and female students striking a female student in the face, head and back with plastic chairs amid the shouts and cheering of people standing around them.

This happened in late 2014, but the thing was only discovered in March. The school’s board of management said it was not informed about the case, while the girl did not report the case to teachers and parents, because she feared the assaultants would “take revenge” on her.

Trinh Thu Tuyet, a teacher of Chu Van An High School in Hanoi, has posted on her fanpage the image of hundreds of students wearing umbrellas and raincoasts sitting on the school yard in a meeting to celebrate the International Women’s Day March 8.

It was dark and rainy in the picture, while hundreds of students stooped in the chilly wind and rain. They are believed to be the students of a school in Thai Binh province.

A two-minute video clip has been posted on Internet showing the image of thousands of students at primary schools singing “chac ai do se ve” (Someone will Return) at a school’s official event.

The song, a hit of Son Tung, is very popular among youth. The “love song for adults” was sung by primary school students, children aged 6-11.

A question has been raised that why small children do not know any songs that fit their ages, but they only know adulsts’ songs. Some analysts commented this is a “deviation from cultural values”.
