Poor performances in this year's Language Proficiency Assessment for Teachers could cause a shortage of new recruits for outlying schools, a leading educator has warned. William Yip Kam-yuen, chairman of the Hong Kong Association of Heads of Secondary Schools, said the low pass rate might create a bottleneck of qualified language tutors. 'Schools far from the city centre may have difficulties in filling their places because of the low number of candidates who have attained the language proficiency requirement. However I believe inner-city schools will continue to have an adequate number of candidates to choose from,' Mr Yip said.
