This book, a statement of genuine concern on the state of the school curriculum in Hong Kong by a veteran educator, forms a comprehensive account of current curriculum development, implementation and interpretation. Kennedy invites the reader to critically examine how local and global issues influence the way the Hong Kong curriculum has been constructed. Against this theoretical background, he maintains a clear, practical focus on present policies of the educational authority and suggests a new curriculum in various fields.
This book sheds light on recent pressure for curriculum change and reform in Hong Kong, offering fresh insights to those concerned with the state of education in both Hong Kong and cities around the world.
