SDG #4 Quality Education

Education in Hong Kong is free and all children are required to attend nine years of compulsory education in primary and junior secondary schools. However, according to researchers at the University of Hong Kong, traditional educational practice and social influences of parents, teachers and the broader society impose immense pressure on students (Hu, Leung & Chen, 2018). Many parents push their children with high expectations of outstanding performance and academic results, and teachers have a tendency to focus on the learning outcomes and not the learning process. Local education has been described as spoon-fed and exam-oriented. As a result, students begin to lack the intrinsic motivation to learn.
