Also, I imagine basic teaching of human rights, democracy, freedoms could be interpreted as inappropriate indoctrination of students.
It sounds like whatever was being taught was school wide and integrated into programmes of study and lesson plans? I'd be surprised if it was blatant teaching of pro independence - surely the teachers/management wouldn't be so stupid?The principal and vice-principals at the school, meanwhile, were given reprimands for what the bureau said was their “poor supervision”, while other teachers at the school were given warning letters over the lesson plans and teaching materials they had used.
The bureau said the school had also punished the teachers in accordance with the existing mechanism, which includes suspensions or postponement of salary increases, and some of the staff had left their jobs.
I am talking as a retired teacher and my experience of schools in the UK and in HK is that the expectation is you remain non partisan in matters of politics. However, you would encourage free thinking and in this regime even that appears to be outlawed.
