Separation of Powers Does Not Exist And
PTU: Relevant Content Should Not Be Deleted
The Education Bureau introduced ‘professional consultation’ for Liberal Studies textbooks on a ‘voluntary’ basis for publishers this year. Audited textbooks have been excessively amended. Among the many changes was the controversial deletion of content related to the separation of powers, which made many question whether the change was driven by political motives. Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung said in response to media that there was no separation of powers in Hong Kong and that must be clarified in textbooks. Chief Executive Carrie Lam later reiterated publicly that there was no separation of powers in Hong Kong’s political system. PTU Vice-President and Liberal Studies teacher Tin Fong-Chak said separation of powers is common sense for Hongkongers and relevant content should not be removed from textbooks.
