    Indeed Willow. Even as far as professional drivers are concerned – the very poorest paid drivers on the road are the school bus drivers. They have the most precious cargo mankind transports – children – and they are paid the poorest – go figure.It is our education system.

    Unfortunately, the guys running the show don’t seem to know up from down, much less what should be taught or how it should be taught… (Just my opinion)

    In Hong Kong, government officers run education like a laboratory and the students are the lab rats…

      Yes I understand it is all very high pressured . Difficult to know which system is worse.

        No, it’s not about pressure, people in HK are used to it. The problem lies on the constantly changing curricula. As in we have major overhauls in the entire curricula for all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary) almost annually. And it’s really major, not just little changes here and there. Even the educators have a very difficult time following them..

        They are now reaping what they sowed. Several of the youths nowadays in HK are not only weak in English but in written Chinese as well. Those policymakers in the Education Department are the ones to blame for this mess.

        Yes I can never understand how the policy makers ,the world over ( and not only in education) seem to be so uninformed, unintouch and unskilled in their professed expertise. I think standards of education are slipping worldwide.

        This quote summarizes it all:

        “There’s no special reason; it’s just government policy.”
