Hanoi to improve children's legal knowledge

Teaching students about traffic law is one of the most important aspects of legal education.

The Hanoi People's Committee planned to roll out the project "Crime Prevention and Strengthening Law Compliance among Students by 2025, with an Orientation to 2030" across the city.

Specifically, schools will provide channels for student feedback to resolve issues related to crime prevention and law enforcement; to sign school-family-local police pacts to this end; and to have at least 95% of schools meet 'safety and order' standards.

The plan sets out five tasks and solutions, such as educating teachers, administrators, staff, workers, and students about the law and crime prevention, and regulations to ensure school safety and order. In addition, all students will be educated about criminals' tricks and crime prevention skills.

The Hanoi authorities will hold lectures, and cultural and extra-curricular activities for students in the form of writing, painting, or posters on crime prevention and compliance with the law.

The plan includes developing communication materials for school members and learners' families on crime prevention and law enforcement while publishing news, articles, and reports on the examples of good people, good deeds, and typical examples of crime prevention and law enforcement on the school website, mass media, and social networks.

It aims to improve coordination between schools and students' families in helping students keep off crimes or break the law, with special attention to students, especially those living in needy circumstances.

The Hanoi People's Committee has assigned the district People's Committees to build a safe, healthy, and friendly educational environment and prevent violence in and out of the schools.

In addition, teaching students about traffic law is one of the most important aspects of legal education, according to the municipal authorities.

According to Nguyen Phi Thuong, Director of Hanoi's Department of Transport, riding motorcycles over 50cc is rampant among students, although the Road Traffic Law prohibits minors under 18 from doing so. "This offense is the cause of traffic accidents and endangers passers-by and the students themselves," Thuong said.

"Currently, there are 152 schools in Hanoi, which are seen as prone to traffic jams and risks. In the first quarter of this year, the Hanoi Traffic Safety Committee Office conducted 15 communication programs on traffic laws and behavior for more than 28,500 teachers, students, and parents in the city," Thuong told The Hanoi Times.
