THANH HOA (VNS) – Around 520 kindergarten teachers from the central province of Thanh Hoa are set to receive financial support from April until the end of the year under a programme benefiting the province's teachers.
The programme's VND22.8 billion (US$1.07 million) budget is intended to supply the teachers with wage subsidies, allowances, and social and medical insurance.
A senior official from the province's Department of Education and Training said that prior to the programme, kindergarten teachers only got VND500,000 ($24) a month in financial support.
The programme was designed to improve low incomes among teachers. The insufficient payments have forced many teachers to quit their jobs. — VNS
