In your blog, you mention the "fundamental school quality levels" and provided a link for the Implementation Completion and Results (ICR) Report for the World Bank project (Primary Education for Disadvantaged Children) which supported the introduction of these "fundamental school quality levels". I just wanted to let others know that the ICR report is well-worth reading. It explains in more details what are these "fundamental school quality levels" and how they work. The ICR report also contains a nice summary of what happened in Vietnam's education sector during the years 2003-2010. By the way, the report argues that the notion of "fundamental school quality levels" was an important "policy instrument" to quantify problems of lagging schools/regions and direct more resources in their direction. I wonder how important this was to Vietnam's recent PISA success? And how many other countries are using similar tools?
