Out-of-School children report 2016
The study shows a large disparity in the out-of-school rates for the poorest and the richest households, and the difference increased with the level of education
The Report on Out-of-School Children 2016: Viet Nam Country Study follows the conceptual methodology of the Global Initiative of Out-of-School children. Based on 2014 Inter-censual Population Survey, evidence allows tracking of education progress and Viet Nam’s achievements during 2009-2014 in reducing the number of out-of-school children across all age-groups, and across all selected provinces. At the same time, it shows the outstanding gaps with higher out-of-school children rates across among some disadvantaged groups such as ethnic minority girls, migrant and children from poorest families. It is expected that this recent evidence will guide the intensification of policy implementation, systematic actions and targeted measures to remove the barriers and enable quality inclusive education for children who lag behind in education in line with Viet Nam commitment to SDG 4 on Education.
