This study examines the work of the Asia-Pacific Programme of Education for All (APPEAL) since its 1987 inception. Efforts to assess educational achievement at the local, regional, and national levels in Vietnam are examined with a view to achieving universal primary education; eradicating illiteracy; and providing continuing education in support of the above objectives. Chapters include: (1) "Achieving Education for All: An Analysis"; (2) "Primary Education during the Past Three Decades"; (3) "Statistics and Projections for the Future"; and (4) "Main Strategies to Achieve Education for All." Statistical data are presented, noting that the country's population doubles within 30 years and that the number of children registering to go to school is only about 50 percent of the total population in the ages of 6-10 years. Suggested strategies to address the program goals focus on a synchronized strategy for literacy training with the universalization of primary education and provision of complementary education for adults, under the auspices of a central Commission for Coordination in Guidance of Literacy and Universalization of 1st Level Education.
