Director of Hanoi’s Department of Training and Education Chu Xuan Dung said of these 14 educational institutions, there are seven kindergartens, two primary schools, four middle schools and one high schools.
At present, the tuition fees for these schools are stipulated in the resolution No.14/2016/NQ-HDND in 2016 of Hanoi People’s Council, which provides the threshold of tuition fee for high quality public educational institutions in the academic year 2019 - 2020. Specifically, at kindergartens and primary schools, the maximum tuition fee allowed is VND5.1 million (US$220.45) per month, for middle - and high schools, the fee is VND5.3 million (US$230) per month.
