Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has announced that the government will dedicate $730 million to The National Target Program on Education and Training, which will be in effect until 2015. This program aims to standardize universal kindergarten, maintain and improve the standardization of primary and secondary education, and improve literacy rates (currently 90.3% across the population). This program also specifically targets development in disadvantaged regions, rural areas, and communities with ethnic minorities. The construction of a number of facilities, libraries, teacher workrooms, and boarding schools, is expected.
