[Archive] Education Commission Report No.7 Quality School Education - ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS


This Report would not have been possible without the assistance and advice of a large number of people. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to them. We are grateful for the studies carried out by the Working Group on Educational Standards and the Working Group on School Funding to improve the quality of school education. Our thanks go to all members and co-opted members of the Task Group on School Quality and School Funding for their valuable work, and a number of people whose assistance and informative presentations enlightened us in finalising our recommendations on quality education.

We would like to thank Mr Geoffrey Lieu of the Hospital Authority for a useful presentation on management reform; Dr Alex C W Fung of the Hong Kong Baptist University and Mr Yung Wing-hon of the Yuen Yuen Institute No. 2 Secondary School for sharing with us their experience in the pilot Educational Aims Implementation Scheme; Mr Paul Wong of the Social Welfare Department and his consultants Messrs Nigel Knight and Phil Madden for a helpful presentation on the proposed reform of the social welfare subvention system; Professor Cheng Yin-cheong of the Hong Kong Institute of Education for valuable references regarding education quality in the Hong Kong school system; Professor Brian Caldwell of the University of Melbourne, Australia, for sharing with us the Australian school reform experience; Dr K C Pang, Professor Wong Hin-wah and Mr Isaac Tse of the Board of Education Sub-committee on Review of School Education for their informative presentation on the recommendations of the "Report on Review of 9-year Compulsory Education".

We would like to record our thanks to the Secretariat for their conscientious efforts on our behalf. We would also like to thank colleagues of the Education Department for various presentations relating to the Department's operation and proposals, and their assistance in the public consultation exercises; the Information Services Department for its design of the Report; the Management Services Agency for technical assistance; and the Printing Department for its efficient service. Our gratitude also goes to the many people who have assisted in one way or another but are too numerous to be acknowledged individually.

Last but not least, we wish to express our sincere appreciation of the wide range of views received from those people who took the trouble to write to newspapers or to us directly, or to attend the various consultative sessions. Their views have been thoroughly considered and reflected as much as we can in the Report.
