Abstract: A static multisector computable general equilibrium model is developed in order to evaluate impacts on poverty and welfare of education public policy in Viet Nam. The model includes flexible households' endowments in qualified and non qualified labor and schooling allows households to "transform" non qualified workers into qualified workers. Demand for education results from the analysis of benefits (higher productivity and wages) and costs (direct and opportunity) of education. Results show that a reduction in public education subsidies leads to lower levels of investment in education, a rise in gross income, a decline in net income (after paying for investment expenditures in education) and a drop in consumer price indexes for every households. This causes, in the end, an improvement (deterioration) in the welfare and poverty situation in rural (urban) areas while inequality diminishes in the population as whole.
