EyE on U | HK's education sector must abandon pro-Western ideology: Mervyn Cheung
China has been developing rapidly in recent years and its international status is rising rapidly. As a regional center of finance, commerce, technology and shipping, Hong Kong must think about how to better integrate into the overall development of the country and achieve long-term stability and prosperity. Under such circumstances, it's all the more important to cultivate students' national identity and a sense of historical responsibility from an early age.
In this episode, we are glad to invite Mervyn Cheung Man-ping, Chairman of the HK Education Policy Concern Organization, to talk about the current state of national education in HK.
"I think the root of the trouble rests with the local education system before the handover, which was fundamentally British-based. So all of the things were oriented towards the British who, of course, tried to keep our minds and souls away from our motherland," he said.
Cheung pointed out that it is time for the HK community to do whatever they can in a positive, proactive and constructive way to change the ways of looking at things in the motherland.
