Abstract

As part of the restructuring of the education system since doi moi or Renovation in 1989, the government of Vietnam has implemented several policy changes. These include transforming some public institutions into private ones, promoting the establishment of "people's" and community educational institutions, and permitting the establishment of private institutions. Since the move from a centrally planned economy to a market economy is recent, it is not surprising that private schools are relatively rare in Vietnam.
