A Chinese University of Hong Kong academic has criticised the report for dodging the issue of how education reforms have weakened the identity and ideals of teachers. At a forum held at CUHK this week, Dora Choi Po-king, associate professor of the university's educational administration and policy department, urged the government to face the problem of reforms undermining teachers' autonomy and dignity. Ho Yuk-fan, one of three speakers and president of the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters, said that while the report observed that trust was missing between the government and educators, it omitted mentioning the 'overbearing' mentality of the reforms. Neither did it look at ways education had been subjected to commercial principles, such as the intensification of competition among schools, she said. Retired teacher Yu Wai-ping pointed to a lack of support network as another source of teacher stress, and catalogued a list of problems she said resulted from the reforms, including being 'bombarded by documents' and having to work long hours.
