Prof. Dr. Dao Thai Lai said that the model has shown the basic objects and principles of operating models and conditions for effective model implementation. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Kieu emphasized that the model of family – school - society is an educational principle, which has been concerned for a long time but always new because of the ever-changing social context. Hence it is reasonable for the author to clarify the dynamics of the model. However, the model needs a clear distinction between different grade-level students who need different impacts of the forces involved in the model.

Lessons learned from French education are analyzed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thi Hanh - senior researcher living and working in France. According to the author, the French education model in addition to bright colors also had internal crisis issues in the moral education of students' lifestyles. Through careful analysis showed that facing the internal crisis is an international issue, professionals of every country in the world must always explore solutions to solve their nation's internal problems based on a multidimensional perspective. Lessons learned for Vietnam from the perspective of French education are as follows:
1. Recognize the problem and the way to solve ethical education related issues in the school under a "globalization" and "multidimensional" lens.
2. Deriving from the reality of the foundation and traditional basis, national culture
3. Clearly define the position, role and function of general education as well as higher education in a clear and practical educational philosophy that is relevant to Vietnam currently, especially suitable to a future social model that Vietnam aims to build.
4. "Publicizing" the school's activities is one of the necessary measures to bring more parents' involvement in ethical education activities.
5. "Quantify" the school's regulations under the specific, clear and transparent motto. In particular, it is necessary to clarify the specific provisions on the role and responsibility of the family to actively coordinate with the school.
6. Provide full information, especially School Rules and Student Communication Booklets.
Regarding these results, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Kieu - Chairman of the Society for Psychological Science and Education said that recognizing some phenomenal and individual issues to assess education should be reconsidered.
Based on the analysis of large-scale survey results on the status of family – school - social coordination, the authors group Dr. Tuong Duy Hai pointed out that most forces outside the school only participate in passive coordination. Where there is active participation in the family and society, the results of moral education and student life will be more positive.

Summarizing the conference, Mr. Bui Van Linh emphasized that the conference was successful with profound professional reports and vivid practical lessons. Through the comments, the research team should continue to improve the models to have specific solutions in which to specify each object participating in the model to what extent, and what are the specific measures to operate the model and the conditions for efficient operation model. The discussion results of the conference would be an important source of information for the Study Team to complete the current research results and orient the next research activities. These were also the important documents for the Student Affairs Department to advise the Ministry's leaders in directing and well performing the task of state management in the field of moral education, lifestyle for students in the coming time. At the same time, from that practice, the Ministry of Education and Training builds and replicates the typical model of coordinating schools - family - society in moral education, lifestyle for students nationwide.
