SED on school registration
    Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, at a media session after officiating at the award presentation ceremony and exhibition of the 5th Bauhinia Cup calligraphy and painting competition for youths from the Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao today (November 12):
Reporter: Can you explain the investigation progress relating to the Think International Academy?
Secretary for Education: We have carried out an inspection last Friday and found that there is an operation of a school without registration and our approval. So immediately we asked them to stop the operation, and the next step that we have to do is to find school places for those students affected.
Reporter: But the leasing agreement (for the premises on which the said unregistered school operated) was started two years ago. Why did it take two years to unfold the event?
Secretary for Education: As I said, we have carried out the inspection last Friday, and from that we found that there is an operation of a school without registration. That is why we stopped them immediately, and you will see that in these two days they have agreed that they will stop the operation. And so we have to find places for the students.
