In an interview with China’s “Shanghai Observer”, Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Education, was asked what possible actions would the Bureau take if a school principal is reluctant to investigate into the conduct of a school teacher, or the principal is in fact supportive of the teachers’ behaviour. Yeung responded that should the principal is not up to the requirement of the position, therefore the Bureau has the right to dismiss the principal in this regard.
Vice President of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’s Association, Legislator Ip Kin-yuen rebuked that Yeung had put unnecessary pressure on the school, forcing school principals to execute political tasks and follow the government’s political stance. Yeung’s comment would incite white terror and could lead to incrimination of teacher by their behavior.
