This year, the Education Bureau revised the Liberal Studies subject to the subject of Civic and Social Development, adding a large number of national elements to the curriculum.
The Chief Secretary for Administration Li Jiachao said today (17th) that with the implementation of the "Hong Kong National Security Law", the society has returned to safety and the campus has also returned to calm, and majors should belong to majors.
He emphasized that education should not be turned into a political tool. It is not only unprofessional, but also immoral.
Li Jiachao said that the social events in 2019 reflected that many young people have a weak sense of the country. The government has supported schools to promote national education by updating curriculum guidelines, developing resources, providing teacher training, and organizing student activities and exchanges in the Mainland.

Li Jiachao delivered a speech at the celebration of the National Day in Hong Kong's education sector. He pointed out that in an ideal campus, teachers should concentrate on teaching and students should concentrate on learning, emphasizing that education should return to the profession of education itself.
He pointed out that the social events in 2019 reflected the young people's sense of non-compliance, as well as the very weak concept of the country.
He believes that schools must nurture young people to have positive values and become patriots who are committed to society, have national concepts, Hong Kong sentiments and international perspectives.
