To meet the requirements of reforming general education in Vietnam, this article propose the education analytical framework consisting of 3 components, 10 basic education factors, of which educational outcomes are in the center. The component of the provincial education quality emphasizes the strategic direction for education development and management of local education activities, including 3 basic groups of factors (Strategic planning, policies and scale of general education; mechanisms and institutions for local general education management; and local education results and achievements); the component of education quality of educational institutions includes 4 groups of factors (management mechanism; education resources; education process; and education results and achievements; and the component of advantages of local education development includes 3 basic groups of factors (resources and geographical location; modern technology infrastructure; and impacts of other systems on the general education). The above groups of factors are concretized into 8 criteria and 81 indicators, ensuring both compatibility with national accreditation standards for general education institutions and supplementing essential indicators to serve a comparison of international education (such as SDG4, UNESCO, ...). This analytical framework and set of criteria are considered as a means to help explain the responsibility of the provincial educational management agency for the quality of general education.
