 Topic: Hong Kong 334 Educational Reform

The Hong Kong 3+3+4 (334) educational reform represents a major development in the form, sequence and substance of current educational research. The Hong Kong Special Administration Region (HKSAR) decided that fundamental educational policy changes were required to ensure accountability, quality and market competitiveness. Starting from the 2009/2010 academic year, the 2+2 British education model (i.e., the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination and the Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination) was completely replaced by the New Senior Secondary Curriculum. The critical analysis in this study is based on a wide variety of government documents and on 22 semi-structured, in-depth face-to-face interviews with key stakeholders involved in Hong Kong 334 educational reforms between February and March 2016. The evolution of Hong Kong 334 educational reform has been critically reviewed. Academic and managerial implications of the study are also given.
