Tran Kieu, chair of the Vietnam Psychology – Education Association, noted that the new general education program (Program 2018) is designed to develop learners’ personal capabilities. “In the past, personalization was not, or very rarely mentioned, while we attached much importance to collectivism. Students’ personality is the important factor to develop humanity,” Kieu said. If the education sector doesn’t change the way of testing and examination, the progressive ideas of the new general education program won’t be implemented. However, positive reform depends on many factors. Bui Manh Hung from the HCM City University of Education, said testing and examination are considered the steering wheel of the innovative ship.

Nations previously known as “developing” have established firmer financial footing and have moved to more valuable parts of the supply chain. I believe that the benefits … [Read more...] about CEO of GE shares views about partnership for new economies
