Fight for scrapping TSA of Primary Three

PTU News Reporter

The controversy has recently been mounting over Territory-wide System Assessment (TSA). HKPTU has conducted surveys three times, which revealed that TSA had already strayed away from its original purpose. We urge the Government to scrap TSA Primary Three permanently. To prevent the Government from delaying this further using “evaluation” as an excuse, we therefore urge the Education Bureau to stop the assessment within this academic year now, so that the pressure of teachers and students would be relieved immediately. If TSA can no longer be ameliorated after the review, TSA of all levels should be cancelled at once. We will now organize different actions to look into TSA and all of you are welcome to join.
