The Central Inspection Commission claims that the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the Ministry of Education committed several management violations during the 2016-2021 term.
In a press release on Thursday, the commission said the Ministry of Education and Training’s Party Civil Affairs Committee had been negligent in its leadership and management, allowing some individuals and organizations to violate Party regulations and the law.
The violations concerned: certain public projects; creating and publishing course books; the organization of the national secondary school leaving examination in 2018 and 2021; and other activities.
Responsibility for such violations rests with: the Party Civil Affairs Committee of the Ministry of Education; Phung Xuan Nha, Deputy Director of the Central Propaganda Department and former Minister of Education; Nguyen Huu Do, former vice minister of education, and other current and former education ministry officials, the commission said.
He also said the violations impacted the results of a resolution on education and training passed by the Party Central Committee; risked the loss of state money and property and company resources; caused social unrest; and had a negative impact on the reputation of the Party and the education sector.
During the national high school leaving examination in 2018, fraud was detected in the provinces of Ha Giang, Hoa Binh and Son La, with 222 candidates whose marks were artificially increased. Thirty-two officials implicated in the exams scandal have been prosecuted.
