{ 內地搭建三方平台 尖子生助留守童 }
2018-06-08

《文匯報》年初,內地雲南山區一名8歲男童,在攝氏零下9度的寒冬中徒步上學,由於保暖衣物不足,抵達學校時,孩子的頭髮眉毛都結滿冰花,雙手亦凍得紅腫,被網民戲稱為「冰花男孩」。

粗略估計,現時內地類似「冰花男孩」的留守兒童約有6,000萬。他們的父母離鄉別井到大城市謀生,只得將孩子託付於人,有些甚至無人看管。過去十多年的義務工作,我親睹內地不少貧瘠地區孩童所面對的困境。無論路程多遠,孩子仍每天堅持長途跋涉上學。

這份刻苦、不畏艱辛的求學決心,感動不少有心人出錢出力,透過學校援建、義教以及獎學金的支援計劃,令整體情況得以紓緩;然而面對全國約六成學校位於貧瘠的偏遠地區的龐大需求,仍是杯水車薪... ...

{ Narrowing the urban-rural education gap }
2018-06-08
China Daily: The Chinese government has been increasing the funding for the education sector and taken several other measures to improve the quality of education, especially in rural areas. These efforts are paying off. But there still remains a huge gap between the quality of education in rural and urban areas, especially in terms of teacher shortages in the mountainous, inaccessible and remote areas, with over 60 percent of the schools at quite a dist...

Hong Kong parents should know that ‘winning at the starting line’ is so yesterday in today’s age of AI and rapid change
 
Stephen Cheung says our children can go further in life if we guide them to nurture their curiosity and motivation for learning, rather than pile on the pressure for them to excel at an early age

各位同事及同學 :
 
由香港教育大學(教大)學生事務處主辦,社創基金全力推動的「社創日」今日3月26日(星期一) 在教大中央廣場舉行。
 
大會除邀請到「社創流動」互動展覽車展出有關的創新項目,亦擺設了多個社創攤位,以及兩個教大學生的初創計劃,藉此介紹他們的項目理念、並即場展示產品以及創新活動體驗。
 
作為教大校長,同時又是社創基金專責小組的主席,我當然要親自到場打氣。

{ 有關校園冒犯性海報的最新情況 }
2017-09-11
各位同事、同學及校友:
 
自上星期五回應外界就學生會民主牆事件的關注後,我離港兩天出席會議,星期日才回來。就冒犯性標語接連出現,我明白社會各界,尤其是教育界、師生的關注,學生會亦就此發出公開信。我已於今早電台節目中作出回應,我希望在此重申相關要點:
 
(一)校內處理 給予空間
 
這兩次事件在教大校園發生,由於性質相同,接連出現,校方已就兩宗事件合併調查,我們會按照既定程序處理,確保院校自主。

{ 譴責校園內出現冒犯的海報 }
2017-09-08
各位同事、同學及校友:

對於昨天(9月7日)在校園民主牆出現冒犯教育局副局長蔡若蓮女士及其家人的語句,我感到十分憤慨及難過,我謹代表教大向蔡若蓮女士及其家人致以萬二分歉意。
 
我在此重申,我們享有言論自由的同時,亦應以和平、理性的態度討論事情,互相尊重,顧及別人感受,這亦是任何公民社會必備的素質。
 
雖然校方仍在調查當中,但作為教大校長,我在這件事上責無旁貸,有關行為完全超越了人性道德的底線,令人蒙羞。是次當事人遭逢遽變,張貼有關言論的人卻毫無惻隱之心,相反加以奚落,在別人傷口上洒鹽,教人情何以堪?在一個孕育未來社會人才的地方出現這樣令人齒冷的言論,校方對此作出最嚴厲的譴責。我在此承諾,校方必定會徹...
