How Would You Change The Education System In Your Country?

855 words - 4 pages

For decades, the education system in Hong Kong has been burdening, obstinate and exam-oriented. Despite having undergone several reforms, the education system still fails to cater for the needs of different students and achieve the genuine purpose of education. If I were given the chance to change the education system in Hong Kong, I would resize the curricula, deprioritise examinations, promote life-long learning, accept divergence and expand the capacity of tertiary education.

I believe that a good education system is one that nurtures self-motivated and life-long learners. It should help students develop their love for knowledge and passion to enrich themselves throughout their lives. Hong Kong needs this group of intellectuals to be a competitive city!
