Ethnic minority students in Hong Kong only understand 70 per cent of class syllabus because of weak Chinese language foundation

By ITS Education Asia


Ethnic minority students in Hong Kong only understand 70 per cent of what is taught in class, a survey has found, raising concern about a lack of support for this group in the education system.

Non-Chinese ethnic pupils also said they had difficulty in catching up with their peers, according to the study by the Hong Kong Policy Research Institute, a think tank which questioned some 200 such students from Primary Four to Secondary Three in 17 schools.

This report recommends that Schools should provide English context and notes with the teaching materials, so such pupils can keep pace with peers.
