A Boys (01 Aug 2004)


Discusses the effectiveness of the Native English Teachers (NET) Scheme since its inception in September 2002. NET, Local English Teachers (LET), school authorities, students and government official share their views and experience of the scheme. While some NET criticize the rigid curriculum and complain of feeling isolated, restricted and unsupported, others feel differently. Chris Wardlaw (Deputy Secretary, Education and Manpower Bureau) denies that the 40-50% NET, who chose not to renew their contract, left because they are unhappy. Yet, with a sizeable number of LET failing the English proficiency test, the government plans to import more NET especially for primary schools.
