One Fifth of Teachers plan to leave Hong Kong Education Sector HKPTU Appeals to the Government to Improve Governance and Stop Interference

In order to understand the changes in future education manpower and do strategic planning, the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union (HKPTU) investigated teachers’ intention of leaving the Hong Kong education sector and their opinions on Hong Kong’s education and social environments. The result reflected that almost one fifth (19.2%) of the respondents had planned to leave the education sector; among them, the estimated attrition rate of senior teachers in primary and secondary schools was relatively high. As for teachers who intended to leave, 71.1% indicated that the reason behind this was “increased political pressure”.
