Politics is in command of Policy Address, and Ignores the sentiments of people
First of all wish you all a Happy Chinese New Year in advance!
The good news is, the Civil Service Pay Adjustment has finally been passed！Teachers of government, aided & DSS schools should receive the pay-back before Chinese New Year. Other than that, out of the 5 appeals that I raised to CY LEUNG in my ‘Prospective of Policy Address’, 2 have been responded: (1) Increasing the graduate teacher ratio in public sector primary schools from 50% to 65%; and, (2) strive for deploying a post of designated teacher for coordinating matters related to SEN support. Unfortunately, this is only a pilot scheme but not a permanent post. Still, it is better than nothing,
The bad news is, CY LEUNG has delivered the most politicised Policy Address in history! In education, it urges primary and secondary schools to organise large amount of exchange tours, and increasing the number of sister schools that use a large sum of money, only valid for going to mainland China. Teachers will definitely be exhausted and will be comprehensively part-time working as free tour guides! In his Policy Address, CY LEUNG criticised articles in the‘Undergrad’. He has also supported the establishment of the ‘Hong Kong Army Cadet’ that has close connection with the People’s Liberation Army. All these highly political acts are worrying to us! On the other hand, for issues that are most concerned by the educational sector, for example stabilising schools, improving the establishment of teachers, increasing the opportunities of employment for young teachers, and establishing a pay scale for early childhood teachers, etc., CY LEUNG has chosen to turn a deaf ear to such requests.
This is an era which we need to be alert! No matter what, fellow workers, please put forward more comments. Here I wish everyone everything auspicious in the year of sheep! (Incidentally speaking, I will be writing Spring scrolls for our members as always. Please come and advise.)
