LECTURERS at Hongkong's teacher training colleges will support their students when they skip classes today to protest against the Government's proposals to change entry requirements. The 300 members of the Association of Lecturers at Colleges of Education agree with the students that the proposed changes would lower standards. The president of the association, Mr Lam Shu-wing, said that although they would continue working today, they agreed with the class boycott as the students' way of expressing their dissatisfaction about the proposals. These include allowing students to enter the colleges with just 11 points, or Grade E in six different Hongkong Certificate of Education Examination subjects over an unspecified time, rather than in one sitting. Mr Lam criticised the Government for failing to provide guidance about how to maintain teacher-training quality if the entry requirements were lowered. ''This is to shift the responsibility to maintain teacher quality to us,'' Mr Lam said. He called for a suspension of the proposals, which he saw as a piece-meal solution to the teacher shortage. He said a comprehensive review of the student-teacher recruitment policy was needed. The association also urged the Government to speed up the upgrading of the Colleges of Education and improve teaching facilities, as suggested in Education Commission Report No 5. ''What we are concerned about is how to enhance teacher-training and help the students in their studies effectively, but the Education Department has ignored that need,'' Mr Lam said. He expressed dissatisfaction with the Education Department for using the drop in the number of student teachers as an excuse to assign lecturers to other jobs. He said the arrangement had resulted in lecturers spending less time on students who were academically poorer.
