HanoiThe Cau Giay District Education and Training Department denied that the school prevented poor students from entering grade 10 and said that “may be due to a misunderstanding”.
On the afternoon of April 20, Mr. Doan Tien Trung, Deputy Head of Education and Training Department of Cau Giay district, said that he had verified question Dich Vong Secondary School and Nghia Tan Secondary School prevent poor students from entering grade 10. The Department of Education asserts that this suspicion is unfounded.
According to the report of the school, the number of 9th grade students in the school year 2021-2022 of Nghia Tan Secondary School is 729. The number of transfers since the beginning of the year is 25. With Dich Vong Secondary School, 11/596 students in grade 9 have transferred schools. The reason for the transfer is mainly according to the wishes of the parents, due to the change of residence. Some switch to private inter-level schools to take advantage of the policy of prioritizing students from the same school when applying for 10th grade.
The Education Department also calls parents whose children are transferring schools; Accordingly, the parents claim not to be coerced.
Responding to the question of not only one but many parents reflecting on the situation of being forced and forced to sign a commitment not to let their children take the exam to 10th grade, Mr. Trung said that “It may be because the information from the teachers in the counseling sessions is jammed, causing misunderstandings for parents”.
He said, when going directly back to school, the Department of Education requires schools to organize counseling on psychology, health, and learning methods for students. For middle and weak students, schools require homeroom teachers to discuss with parents to coordinate support. The number of parents at Dich Vong school exchanged was 44 and Nghia Tan was 21. Mr. Trung said that the department had checked the minutes of these counseling sessions and found that “there was no forcing students to transfer schools or not take the entrance exam. 10th grade”.
“Teachers’ way of communicating may cause misunderstandings. In the near future we will foster communication and exchange skills for teachers,” said Mr. Trung.
A representative of the Department of Education said that schools have no reason to prevent poor students from entering grade 10 because the rate of admission to public schools is not part of the criteria for assessing the performance of schools or teachers. After the exam, the Education Department has statistics on the average score of the 10th grade entrance exams of schools, but only to grasp the situation.
In addition to the two schools named, currently, Cau Giay district requires 100% of secondary schools in the area to review and check the reflected status.
Previously, from the evening of April 19, many forums reflected on the fact that a number of secondary schools in Hanoi advocated and even asked students in grade 9 with poor academic performance to transfer to private schools, vocational schools, or commit not to. public entrance exam for 10th grade. The complaints refer to two secondary schools in Cau Giay district. Some parents in other counties also reported that they “have been in this situation”.
Before the Department of Education’s explanation, Some parents still assert, this situation has existed before. A parent in Cau Giay district said that last year, his son was in grade 9 at a secondary school in Dich Vong ward. His son was weak in school, so the school suggested that he make an application not to take the public 10th grade exam. His family used to be very tired from having to attend many meetings.
“At those meetings, teachers did not explicitly say not to take the public school exam, but threatened to go around and force the child to double-study. If they said it directly, it would save them having to be called up many times,” the parents shared. After finding out from a friend who is a teacher at the school, this father clearly intends to suggest that students do not take the public school exam to avoid affecting the overall results of the school.
Mr. Trung said that in previous years, the Department of Education and Training did not receive direct feedback. The room is ready to receive information and verify. “If there is a problem that prevents poor students from entering the public 10th grade exam, we will strictly handle it according to regulations,” Trung emphasized.
