The number of schools in the city's districts and towns on track to meet national standards is 141 this year, up from a target of 114.

Hanoi plans to raise the total number of public schools meeting national standards to 141 in 2024, surpassing the city's target by 27 schools, according to the Hanoi Department of Education and Training.

Among them,  there are 55 kindergartens, 52 primary schools, 29 junior high schools and five high schools. National standards for schools in Vietnam include having a spacious playground, sports fields, disaster safety, and anti-glare boards.

Earlier, the Hanoi Department of Education and Training said it had reviewed, compiled and submitted to the city a plan to build 114 public schools that meet national standards in districts and towns, including 43 kindergartens, 44 primary schools, 24 middle schools and three high schools.

According to the 2024 Plan, units and localities are urgently implementing the construction of national standard schools, the ministry added.

The city's Department of Education and Training acknowledges that building schools meeting national standards in the city still faces many challenges, such as a lack of land reserve for new school construction or expansion and a shortage of funds for facilities, equipment and personnel. 

To realize the set plan, the Municipal Department of Education and Training asked authorities of districts and towns to prioritize focus resources in building schools that meet national standards.

The department also urged the city People's Committee to promptly address the difficulties and obstacles in implementing the construction of national standard schools.
