Head Schooled On Special Needs
A Tuen Mun secondary school principal has come under fire for associating the students of a special needs school with triads, drug users and cults. Principal Choi Kwok-kwong of the Yan Oi Tong Chan Wong Suk Fong Memorial Secondary School made the associations in a letter to the Legislative Council ahead of an education panel meeting, which was going to discuss the relocation of a special needs school from Lantau to the neighborhood of Choi’s school. In the letter, Choi called on lawmakers to defer the relocation. The school’s administration later apologized for Choi’s choice of words, admitting that the letter had selectively borrowed terminology from an out-of-date Education Bureau document. The head of the special needs school blamed the misunderstanding on a lack of awareness regarding services offered by special needs schools. Our take: Looks like somebody enrolled in Quote Mining 101.
