Curriculum needed for minority pupils
(01-16 18:05)

An advocacy group that fights for the rights of ethnic minorities -- Hong Kong Unison -- on Thursday welcomed an apparent change of "mind-set" by the government in acknowledging the rights of pupils from the group to be taught Chinese as a second language.
However, the Chairwoman of the group's Executive Committee -- former legislator Margaret Ng Ngoi-yee -- said there was a gap between what Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying stated on the issue in his Policy Address on Wednesday, and what was inside his policy agenda.
She pointed out that the government was proposing a vague "framework" when what was needed was a curriculum for teaching Chinese as a second language. --RTHK
