Primary school class in Nha Trang.

In Vietnamese culture, the respect shown to teachers is at the same level as that due to the parents. This is part of the deep rooted cultural fabric of society. Once a year, usually during "Tet" (Vietnamese new year), teachers are visited by they former pupils as a mark of respect, and offered presents.

In the meanwhile, in France, alongside teachers, we employ a battery of all sorts of psychologists and shrinks to try to "communicate" with children or their irresponsible parents. Politicans even talk of rewarding them money to motivate learning and social integration.

No need for such nonsense in Vietnam. Children are thirsty for knowledge, respecfull of parents, teachers and elders, and the parents make sure they do. Great shame and loss of face for them if they don't.
