The chairman of the Education Commission, Antony Leung Kam-chung, feels that Hong Kong needs more elite schools.

There is one kind of elite school created by our Education Department - a museum to store gifted pupils who have perfected the ancient dying art of rote learning.

The other, of course, comprises the International Schools. This is the system all our students dream of attending. Which type of elite school is Mr Leung going to offer our students? NALINI DASWANI Kowloon
