SED on curriculum review
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, at a media session after attending Legislative Council meeting today (May 2).

Reporter: Secretary, I want to ask about the review of the curriculum. Why is it necessary to have such a review now and are changes coming too quickly in terms of Liberal Studies subject? Will teachers be able to cope with that change?

Secretary for Education: We have set up a number of task forces to review different aspects of education. One of the task forces is to review the curriculum which is one of the areas that we think it is necessary or timely to conduct a review. What we would like to do is through the review, we could assess whether the curriculum, as of today, is sufficient to prepare our students for their future. We also wish to make sure that the curriculum has provided sufficient opportunities for students to have whole person development. These are the purposes of the review. Whether the review will cover individual subjects, we will leave it to the task force to decide.
