  1. Don't touch ESF teachers' pay

    Posted Nov 28th 2004, 12:00am by Staff Reporter

    ... teachers' salaries should keep quiet until they understand the full picture. It is very simple. The ESF employs the best staff available from the UK and Australia. Each job that is advertised is swamped with applicants, and in the vast majority of cases the cream is chosen. Any business person knows that if you want to lure the best, you have to pay for it. The ESF secondary schools have ...

  2. Non-Chinese parents also need help with children's education

    ... next. We have all seen just how quickly it can act when threatened with a Sunday afternoon protest march. Why is there still no action on the problem of funding for the ESF? I believe that, shortly after the handover, the Hong Kong government decided the ESF represented a relic of British colonialism that had no place in the new SAR. In the past decade, government support ...

    ... Q Is the ESF pay scale proposal fair and necessary? The ESF teachers' pay scale should be scaled back to what the schools can afford. As a taxpayer, I support the 10 per cent pay cut but believe it does not go far enough.

    ... to stand on his own feet. Adrian Lee, Western Q is the ESF pay scale proposal fair and necessary? When I look at institutions such as the ESF, it's easy for me to understand why there are still a lot of locals who harbour resentment towards foreigners.
