To follow up on the announcement in the Chief Executive’s 2017 Policy Address, the Education Commission set up the Task Force on December 1, 2017 to review the existing approach and practices in promoting home-school co-operation and parent education, in order to formulate the direction and strategy for enhancing both. In the past several months, the Task Force has studied local and overseas researches and the existing approach and practices on promoting home-school co-operation and parent education, and proposed preliminary directions, strategies and improvement measures.
The proposed improvement measures include the school-based, community-based and territory-wide parent education programmes, e-learning mode and the parent education programmes provided in the workplace, a “Happy Kids Campaign”, a curriculum framework on parent education and further strengthening the role of Parent-Teacher Associations and Federations of Parent-Teacher Associations.
The Task Force attaches great importance to the views of the public. It is consulting the public on the recommendations. Views from the public will serve as valuable reference for the Task Force's formulation of the final recommendations.
