[EN] Article about EDB’s repeated enquiries
This Wednesday (the 12th), the Anti China Extradition Bill protest turned into a large scale conflict. These few days students from many secondary schools are going on strike, and on Tuesday the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union (HKPTU) has called for all teachers in Hong Kong to boycott classes. Yesterday (the 13th) Education Bureau (EDB) minister Kevin Yeung has contacted all schools in Hong Kong and stated that schools should treat non-permitted absences from teachers according to the regulations. The Hong Kong Association of the Heads of Secondary Schools (HKAHSS) chairman, Teddy Tang, has expressed that since Wednesday, all secondary schools have been receiving district phone calls from the Education Bureau each morning to enquire about the number of absentees, both students and teachers. He described the situation to be “different from usual,” but understood the EDB’s concern. He believes that the current state of society is conflicting and that this would seriously affect the peace of campuses and the operation of schools. He stated once again that having the government slow down the process of amending the bill is the proper solution to the issue.
