Pham Thi Quynh


The Confucian education of the Mac dynasty[1], besides its great achievements, also contributed significantly to the stagnation in economy, science and technology, as well as negative thoughts that were still deeply rooted in the perception of people in Vietnam.

This is also a prerequisite for building an advanced education, imbued with national identity with the noble purpose of training people who are fully developed, have enough virtue, enough talent, participate in winning force into the construction and defense of the socialist Vietnamese Fatherland.
