Public Service Broadcasting Review; Education Reforms and the Pressures on Hong Kong's Teachers (20 Jan 2006)


Radio Television Hong Kong has been the focus of many news reports this week, despite government claims that it's not the focus of a review of public service broadcasting that was finally announced on Tuesday. We discuss the review with the chairman of the review committee, Ray Wong; Assistant Director of Broadcasting for Radio, Tai Keen-man; and legislator Emily Lau. Hong Kong's a competitive place, and the rat-race starts early. There's a lot of pressure on children to get into a fast-track kindergarten if they want to enter the better schools and universities. The pressures affect teachers too, and they - and the government's education reforms - are being blamed for the recent suicides of two members of the profession.
