ADDRESSING MULTI-CULTURAL EDUCATION AND EDUCATION FOR ETHIC MINORITY GROUPS THROUGH VALUE-ADDING TO THE LEARNING OF VIETNAMESE STUDENTS

Tony Richardson

Abstract


This paper acknowledges the truly exceptional performance of Viet Nam’s students, the success of Viet Nam’s education system, and the achievements of its committed educational professionals. The purpose of this paper is to encourage some global dialogue by focusing on strategies that could be used to further enhance the effectiveness of schools in Viet Nam, via multicultural education and the education of ethnic minority groups, through value-adding to the learning of students. The facilitation of this global dialogue is addressed by emphasising three key areas; the value-adding to the learning of students, the value-adding to the learning of students through a teacher’s knowledge of practice and knowledge for practice, and the value-adding to the learning of students by the filling of gaps-in-contextual knowledge. It is envisaged that the discussions generated from this paper might contribute to the global dialogue on Viet Nam’s school effectiveness, which in turn may assist in promulgating, and enhancing, the excellent quality of education provided by Viet Nam’s Ministry of Education and Training (MOET).
