Optimising the Four Senior Secondary Core Subjects to Create Space and Cater for Learner Diversity

The optimising measures of the Four Senior Secondary (SS) Core Subjects (Chinese Language, English Language, Mathematics, Citizenship and Social Development) will be implemented at Secondary 4 in the 2021/2022 school year so as to create space for students and cater for learner diversity. Five videos produced by the Curriculum Development Institute of Education Bureau aim to explicate the rationale and arrangements, so as to facilitate different stakeholders’ (e.g. students, parents) understanding of the optimising measures. Representatives of parents and the education sector are invited to share their views in the videos.
