Many universities lack well-qualified teachers

It has been revealed that 20% of universities inspected in Vietnam failed to meet regulations on the number of teachers and their qualifications, reports VietNamNet Bridge. In particular, seven universities had fewer than 50 official teachers each.

HCM City's Van Hien University and Information Technology College exhibited the most serious violations by providing only one teacher for up to 90 students. The ministry's regulations state that each university needs to ensure one teacher per 25 students.

Nguyen Huy Bang, the Ministry of Education’s chief inspector, said the universities had been asked to stop recruiting new students until they are equipped with enough qualified teachers. He said authorities would continue making regular inspections to eradicate the problem.
