HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam on Tuesday met with 68 outstanding teachers to be honoured in the upcoming "Sharing with Teachers" ceremony, held ahead of Vietnamese Teachers' Day on November 20.

The Việt Nam Youth Federation, Ministry of Education and Training, and Thiên Long Group launched the programme.

In the meeting, the deputy prime minister asserted that the Party and Government always paid special attention to education and training as a top national policy, as well as prioritised investment in education development in the regions with difficulties and ethnic minorities.

He warmly praised the valuable contributions of the 68 teachers of the "Sharing with Teachers" Program in 2022. He said that the teachers came from different places with different conditions, but they all had one thing in common: dedication and devotion to the cause of education.

"If teachers do not have such great determination, how can students in remote areas rise out of poverty and change their own fate?" said the deputy prime minister.

He said the traditional studiousness of Vietnamese people was an important premise to strongly promote education and training, which is necessary for university education and job training.

The special attention and great expectation about the education of the public today was the driving force to arouse the participation of the entire political system in cheering, motivating and gratefulness to teachers across the country, Đam said.

He suggested that the education and training sector needed to pay more attention to increasing the content of knowledge, sustainability, and excitement for both students and teachers.

He asked the Việt Nam Youth Federation, Ministry of Education and Training and relevant offices to continue to pay attention to taking care of teachers and students in poor and remote areas, as well as deploying more practical activities to promote intelligence and strength of youth in the cause of national construction and defence.

He believed that the programme participants would constantly strive, practise, uphold the sense of responsibility for the profession and perfect their professional qualifications to complete the task of education and training.

Vice President Xuân said the great contributions of Bình to achievements of education and training of the country contributed to today's teaching staff successfully carrying out the comprehensive education reform.

Xuân hoped that, in the future, the education sector would continue to receive the attention and advice of the former vice president so that the educational cause of the country would take steps in the right direction.

Bình thanked Xuân for visiting and for her good wishes and affection.

Bình expressed her admiration for many young, especially teachers, who made many practical contributions to the education sector and who were beautiful examples of dedication to the profession. She also hoped that all teachers and educational staff would keep the flame of love for their profession and be devoted to educating and training the young generations.

The former vice president believed that with the attention of Party and State leaders, the country's education sector would continue to make new strides in the future.

Nguyễn Thị Bình held the position of Minister of Education from 1976-1987 and made many contributions to the country's education.

Then, from 1992 to 2002, she held the position of Vice President of Việt Nam.

In 2003, she founded the Việt Nam Peace and Development Fund and serves as its president to this day.

In addition, she is the honorary president of the Việt Nam Association of Agent Orange/dioxin Victims.

On the same day, Vice President Xuân also visited and presented gifts to Labour Hero and People's Teacher Nguyễn Đức Thìn in Từ Sơn City of Bắc Ninh Province.

On behalf of the Party and State leaders, Xuân expressed gratitude to the People's Teacher for his dedication to the education cause of the country, especially the movement of "Thousand good deeds" he initiated.

"Thousand good deeds" has become a far-reaching movement among children across the country.

Xuân emphasised that, despite being over 80 years old, Thìn was still enthusiastic and passionate about his profession.

His stories and poems had inspired generations of teachers to study and follow.

Xuân also wished that the Labour Hero and People's Teacher Nguyễn Đức Thìn would continue to contribute to the cause of education in the country and also asked the education sector of Bắc Ninh Province to continue spreading the example of Thìn to train a team of qualified teachers who are passionate about the profession. — VNS
