We believe that all children, including ethnic minority children, have a right to education that allows them to achieve fullest potential. We believe that ethnic minority children should be able to learn Chinese in order to enjoy the same opportunities as their native Chinese counterparts. We believe that ethnic minority children with special education needs should be given every opportunity to flourish.
Our research shows that 57% of ethnic minority children with special educational needs drop out of primary school, compared to just 5% of their Chinese counterparts. In addition, ethnic minority children who do not learn Cantonese in kindergarten end up in English Medium of Instruction schools, which tend to lead to fewer job opportunities.
