Overseas Network, September 23, in Hong Kong, calls for general education to examine the issue have been constantly voiced. General education is closely related to social events, but there are loopholes in its implementation. It is easy for people with ulterior motives to disseminate and infiltrate biased information, and some students are poisoned. Recently, the Hong Kong Education Bureau has decided to provide professional advisory services to the publishing house to ensure the well-being of students. It hopes that the publishing house will complete the revision of the published general education textbooks within this academic year. It also says that the feasibility of textbooks being submitted for examination will be considered.

According to Hong Kongs Orange News 23, Hong Kong Education Bureau Deputy Secretary-General Kang Chen Cuihua said that the current general education textbooks need not be submitted for examination. Many so-called textbooks of general education in high schools circulated on the market have not been approved by the authorities, but these textbooks have been adopted by many schools and become incitement to riots by some people. Powerful propaganda. Previously, Hong Kong media have repeatedly exposed that some people with ulterior motives have made use of the loopholes of no trial, no standards in general education to produce political propaganda materials called textbooks to incite students to participate in struggle or even radical and illegal acts.

Hong Kong Education Bureau understands the publics concerns about the quality of general education textbooks, Kang said. To ensure the well-being of students, the Hong Kong Education Bureau has decided to provide professional advisory services for publishing houses to enhance the quality of general education textbooks published at this stage.

Kang Chen Cuihua pointed out that advisory services were the consensus reached after discussions between the Bureau and the Hong Kong Association of Educational Publishing Professionals. She stressed that the Education Bureau expected the publishing house to complete the revision work in this academic year. In addition, it would also consider the long-term quality assurance measures of the General Education Section, including the feasibility of textbook submission for examination.

Hong Kong media pointed out that the general education in Hong Kong has been carried out for 10 years. Its purpose is to deepen studentssense of society, country, world and environment and cultivate positive values. However, from the performance of some radical young people this summer, the free and elegant general education has obviously failed. Hong Kongs general education advocates paying attention to reality and advocating critical thinking, which is meaningful in itself. However, in the context of the lack of national education in Hong Kong, the emphasis on critical thinking will become a one-legged walk.

In the 2008 Policy Address, Chief Executive Lin Zheng-yue-e stressed: Our educational policy objective is to train young people to become a new generation of qualified people with a commitment to society, a national concept, a Hong Kong feeling and an international perspective. Can Hong Kongs education today meet this goal? It needs reflection, consensus and change. Because once you lose in education, you lose everything. It is time to review and change general education in Hong Kong.
