New law can be explained to pupils

May 23, 2020

When the new national security law is enacted and implemented in Hong Kong, the Education Bureau will see how to explain it to students.


Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung made the remarks after attending a radio programme today, adding that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government fully supported the National People's Congress decision to legislate for a new national security law which would be applicable to Hong Kong.


“One of the follow-ups that they mentioned is about education on national security in Hong Kong.


“I think this is more than just school education. It is also about education in the whole community, because I believe every citizen also has the responsibility to ensure national security.


“In schools, of course, when the law is enacted and implemented, we will see how to explain to our students the essence of the law and also the underlying principles to them in our curriculum.”
