Hong Kong Education-Plan Protesters Invited to Meet Chief

September 07, 2012

Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying invited three groups to “have a frank exchange of views” on a proposed Chinese national-education curriculum that they oppose.

Leung invited Scholarism, the Parents Concern Group on National Education and the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union to meet with him and Anna Wu, chairwoman of Committee on the Implementation of Moral and National Education, according to a notice posted on the government’s information-services website today.

Protesters began camping out at the government headquarters on Aug. 30, demanding that Leung abandon plans for the national- education classes that they said portray an overly favorable view of Communist Party rule in China.
