For football fans, the losses were salt rubbed into the wound of the SEA Games defeat against Malaysia in Laos last year.
defeats have re-ignited the debate about using naturalised players, but
if we take the long-term view for the benefit of the national team, it
is better to focus on building a really professional football
environment and creating more opportunities for talented young local
players to improve their skills.

|MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches ||MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches |
The decision by the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to not allow universities to enroll students under the B-group (students have to take exams in mathematics, chemistry and biology) for several training branches has caused surprise and opposition from many universities
move, which is described as aiming to tighten the enrolment of students
to universities, has not only surprised universities but also caused
shock to several millions of students who are going to attend final
exams and university entrance exams in June and July.
technology, which is considered the most fashionable and hottest
training branch and proves to be the choice of many students, is one of
the study branches which will not enroll students under the B-group.
training division of the Hung Vuong People Founded University said that
it received a lot of calls last week from students who asked why the
university does not enroll students under group B for several study
branches any more.
do not know how to explain it to students,” said Nguyen Thi Mong Binh,
Head of the Training Division under Hung Vuong University. We informed
in late-2008 that the university will enroll students under group B for
these study branches. “We had been sure that we could enroll students
under group B for those branches until we received the information
several days ago,” she added.
Van Hien People’s Founded University also said that it is still
awaiting the final decision from MOET on the university’s enrolment of
students under group B. Van Hien has been enrolling students under A, B,
C and D groups for psychology and sociology branches since 2007.
However, MOET has suddenly decided that the university will not enroll
students under B group any more.
Quoc Hop, Head of the Education Division under Van Hien University said
that in 2007, the university gave detailed explanation to MOET about
why the university needs to enroll students under group B for the two
branches. With the explanations, the university got the permission from
the ministry to enroll students under group B. However, the ministry has
decided that the enrolment of students under group B will not be
allowed after it got the nod before.
Xuan Phong, Deputy Headmaster of FPT University, argued that it is a
wrong decision to not allow enrolling students under group B for
information technology study branch.
said that information technology proves to link with many fields. IT
engineers will have to work in many fields, which require them to have
comprehensive knowledge in many fields, including biology.
It is clear that the sudden decision by MOET will affect the benefit of universities and students as well.
administration, finance and banking, and accountancy study branches
enroll 50% of total students. If MOET prohibits the university to enroll
students under B group, this will seriously affect the management and
training of the university,” said Mong Binh.
Phong said that the sudden decision without any informing in advance
proves to be the action MOET should not do because this will affect
students negatively. He said that many students have been preparing for
taking exams under group B for many years, and what will they have to do
if they are not allowed to take exams under group B any more? If they
still want to study information technology, they will have to take exams
under group A (mathematics, physics and chemistry), and in this case,
it is not sure that they will have enough time to prepare for this.
think education managers need to give reasonable answers before making
decision, as the decision will affect students’ benefit and the economic
development,” Phong said.

grade next fall.

“The class is crowded, which means that all parents believe that it is
necessary to teach kids in advance,” Linh’s brother remarked.
He added that some parents do not want their children to study with others in the narrow classrooms, so they hire tutors.

advisable to teach kids to write. Dong thinks that children need to have
