According to a resolution issued by the Danang City People’s Council, the city will pay 100% of the tuition fees of students for the 2021-2022 school year based on the fees of public schools.

The beneficiaries include students of public and private kindergartens and high schools. Meanwhile, students of foreign-invested schools are not entitled to this policy.

Besides, the Danang City People’s Council has also issued a resolution on supporting policies for preschool children whose parents are factory workers.

Specifically, children studying at public or private kindergartens in the city whose fathers, mothers or caregivers are workers at industrial parks will each receive VND200,000 per month.

In addition, teachers of public or private kindergartens located in areas that have industrial parks meeting Article 1, Clause 10 of Decree No. 105/2020/ND-CP will each receive VND800,000 per month.

These policies are part of the Danang City government’s efforts to support people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and ensure uninterrupted education for the students.
