As class suspensions drag into a third month, we look at who exactly is responsible.

We also call on HK to ban non-resident arrivals, and look at what other countries must do, or suffer, to get COVID-19 under control. (22-Mar-2020)

LegCo Question on ESF Nomination Rights Scheme
HK Government, 31-Oct-2012
"The ESF is an established and valued member of our school system. Review of the subvention should be based on a holistic perspective of the entire school system and the position of the ESF therein, taking into account the arrangements for other schools which operate in a like-fashion.

This notwithstanding, we have also reiterated that the subvention review will not prejudice the interests of the existing students before any new subvention arrangement takes effect."
