"The unique contribution of this study stems from our examination of the interaction effects of factors on secondary schooling enrollment of children via a logistic function. Research findings show that while there is a general consensus about the positive role of household income in determining some educational outcomes, this does not appear to be the case for school enrollment in this study. The probability of children staying in school is positively related to the changes in parental education level (the householder's education level). In terms of schooling, there is no significant difference between boys and girls for school continuing. Age of children is yet a crucial factor; that is, the older the children the lower the probability of schooling enrollment. The enrollment probability is especially influenced by regional specifics. That is probability of children in rural areas is lower than those who live in urban ones. Similarly, number of siblings in a household poses a negative effect on enrollment probability.
The paper concludes with research-based solutions for preventing children from dropping out of the education system after completing primary education. The policy implications of our results point to, among other things, the need for refocusing government's educational spending and investment. Among these are improving school quality and incentives in rural areas; enhancing parents' perception of and community's attitude towards secondary education; and efficient implementation of the public funding for education at local level.
The campaign “Vietnamese give top priority to Vietnamese goods” recently launched by the Politburo gives Vietnamese enterprises a good chance to develop the domestic market. This market, with over 86 million people who are spending more and more, is a very sweet cake but how to take foothold in that big market is not an easy problem for Vietnamese enterprises these days. This paper analyses some limits of Vietnamese enterprises in developing the domestic market in the past and proposes some solutions to the development of this potential market in the coming days.
"In the last decades of the twentieth century, the scientific – technological revolution took place and one of its most outstanding features is the revolution in information technology. Along with other high technologies, the IT is changing drastically the economic, cultural and social life of the world. The industrial economy changes into a knowledge-based one. To develop the IT in Vietnam becomes an inevitable way of building an information society thereby contributing to a fast and sustainable development and opening a short cut to industrialization and modernization.
This approach requires participation of all social classes and help from foreign partners as well, that is, both external and internal forces, in the development of IT human resource. This problem has become urgent and aroused a lot of interest in recent years.
By employing various methods, such as system approach, comparison, analysis and synthesis, and logical and historical approaches, the paper tries to present size, quality, structure, training and employment of the IT human resource in Vietnam today, thereby suggesting measures to develop this army in future.
