    Ethnic minority students still being left behind

    Surely at this point it's clear this is a government policy - only wealthy expats who can pay for their own private school should be coming to HK because the local school system is only going to provide the bare minimum especially when it comes to learning Chinese.

    The only problem being that there are indeed HK people who are not Chinese by ethnicity and it's those that the government is failing

    Yes I cannot believe they are content to just allow people who have been here for generations completely flounder because of their ethnic background.

    You must be new here.

    And for the record, it's not like the colonial powers did much in this town. The problem, like you mentioned, is historical and the improvements have always been focused on doing the least you can do to get a tick mark.
