The most typical example is the Workshop on evaluation and proposal of policies for education and training development for ethnic minorities organized by the Provincial Union. At the conference, the participants also assessed and expressed the fact that defining special disadvantageous communes in ethnic minority and mountainous areas had been not clear, which made the understanding, application of subject and beneficiaries inconsistent. The decisions appoving special disadvantageous communes followed the 135 Program, however, in the Decision No. 05/2007/QĐ-UBDT dated September 6th 2007 of National Committee for Ethnic Minority on recognizing 03 ethnic and mountainous areas followed development level; the unreasonable stipulation that students must stay at school to entitle favourable policies mentioned in the Decree creates unfair treatment to them; the beneficiaries of policies for kindergartens have not been expanded to children at such kindergartens, etc. Therefore, proposals and suggestions were highly appreciated including recommendation for consolidation of following documents: Decree No. 61/2006/ND-CP dated June 20th 2006 and Decree No. 116/2010/ND-CP of the Government on the policies for teachers, education administrators working at specialized schools, areas of exceptional socio-economic difficulties; funding for the construction of kitchens, canteens, expenses for cooking foods for the students entitling the policies; Increasing the support amount for children at kindergartens at ages of 3, 4, and 5 following Decision No. 60/2011/QD-TTg dated December 26th 2011 of the Prime Minister (the current amount of VND 120,000 per child per month remains low) to VND 200,000/child/month; Amending, adjusting some regulations of Decree No. 109/2009/TTLTBTC-BGDDT dated May 29th 2009 to make it suitable with existing situation, said Dr. Vỵ .
