Hong Kong schools struggling to teach Chinese to ethnic minority students, sparking calls for more government funding to tackle problem

By ITS Education Asia

A recent survey found that only about 38 per cent of teachers say they are confident in teaching the subject to non-Chinese-speakers. A further concerning statistic from this survey is that most primary school principals report having difficulty in employing staff with relevant skills to teach Chinese as a second language.

Schools are asking for more support in helping them achieve the goal of being able to successfully teach Chinese as a second language to the non-Chinese speaking students.

This seems like something that should be given the extra funding it needs.
