Abstract


This study investigates the concept of responsibilities among 5th grade students from ethnic minority groups in Viet Nam. A sample group of 300 5th grade students from ethnic minority groups was selected by convenience sampling together with 300 peers from the ethnic majority group. All of them were asked to complete a questionnaire designed for the purposes of the study. The finding shows that the concept of responsibilities among 5th grade students from ethnic minority groups initially reaches the basic responsibilities which are society requirements for children. However, it still weaker than that of peer partners from the ethnic majority group. The difference is statistically significant. Results also indicate that there is equal concept of the responsibilities of 5th grade students from ethnic minority groups in three dimensions: "Good children in the family", "Good students in school" and "Uncle Ho’s good children" (“Good children in society”). The correlations between them are moderate average but have statistically significant.
