One of the issues that has received special attention in recent times is the price textbook increased, 2 to 3 times higher than that of old books. In addition to the quality of paper and beautiful printing, the socialization is also the reason why textbooks keep increasing in price suddenly.
The list of 3rd grade textbooks that students have to buy at a school in Hanoi is 32 titles with a total amount of more than 600,000 VND. This number will be larger if English books are added.
The cost of textbooks is even more a burden for poor families. After this summer, Minh Hang will enter grade 6 and follow the new curriculum. My mother worked as a day laborer, 2 years of epidemic raging, every month at most was just over 2 million dong.
Desire to reduce textbook shelf It is also the common aspiration of teachers in disadvantaged areas. As a commune in the mountainous area, No poor households and near-poor in Ba Trai and Ba Vi account for a high percentage. Their tuition fees have been supported by a policy, but parents still have to buy textbooks themselves.
In recent days, the issue of stabilizing textbook prices has also heated up the National Assembly. The price of textbooks was once again raised by the National Assembly deputies during a question-and-answer session on the financial sector.
In response to questions from delegates, Minister of Finance Assuring that textbooks are not goods priced by the state, they are on the list of price declarations, so the right to price belongs to the publisher. Regarding the inclusion of textbooks in price stabilization products, he said, this is the decision-making authority of the National Assembly. Government agencies are responsible for advising and submitting.
While waiting for the relevant ministries and sectors to work together to find a way to manage the textbook shelves, each family is still forced to manage to have enough books for their child in the coming school year. It is expected that from next July, Oanh and her husband will have to work overtime in the evening hours to be able to take care of their 3 children.
