Since Sep 2004, the Education Bureau (EDB) adopted a new arrangement for the education of ethnic minority children. Under the new policy, these children could opt to study in mainstream primary school that help them integrate into the community earlier. However, new challenges were brought to schools such as adaptation of students, teachers and principals, and building a racial inclusive learning environment is another new issue.
Unison believes, the promotion of multi-culture education could reinforce the racial awareness and sensitivity. It also facilitates the acceptance among different races, and mutual appreciation with respect. In long term, it could benefit the Inclusive Education that align with the goal of EDB's new policy. In response to the new policy, we organized training for teachers to cultivate their cultural sensitivity, reinforce their skill to deal with EM students and parents.
