Abstract
This qualitative study explored the key challenges of teachers and students living in remote rural mountainous regions of northern Vietnam. This study was carried out in Dien Bien Province, one of Vietnam’s most disadvantaged areas. Even though this issue has been studied by many researchers and educators around the world and Vietnam, it is not paid enough attention to remote and mountainous areas like Dien Bien. Information was gathered using multiple interviews with 04 teachers and 04 students at 02 High Schools in Dien Bien Province. An analysis of the results of this study resulted in the identification of key challenges shaping the teaching and learning outcomes of studied participants. Key influences identified were: technological challenges, pedagogical challenges, learning and teaching environment challenges, and social challenges. This study suggests some solutions for both government and individuals so as to have better educational outcomes.
