How Hong Kong Reformed Schools - Global Learning - Education Week

How Hong Kong Reformed Schools - Global Learning - Education Week:

 "Hong Kong has undergone extensive education reforms over the last twelve years. It has made access to education and 21st century skills a priority for all students.

In the past, the Hong Kong education system was highly selective and screened many students out of the system. Now, reformers are challenging this notion and giving all students access to twelve years of free education.

Higher education is also changing. Undergraduate programs previously had a very limited number of seats and only lasted for three years. Now, students will attend for four years and an expansion of seats means that 30% of students will be able to attend a Hong Kong university by 2015 compared to only 19% today."
