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”. Dr. FUNG Wai-wah, the President of the HKPTU, pointed out that the result revealed the enormous political pressures exerted by the Education Bureau (EDB), which had further pushed our educators away. FUNG urged the EDB to immediately stop its political interference from allowing teachers to focus on teaching and providing students with the education they need.
