Today Hong Kong is again to see probably tens of thousands of people taking to the street in protest of the government's bulldozing through what it calls the national identity subject to be implemented in schools this September. The issue became rough when the media discovered in a government-sponsored teaching handbook that the subject would be heavily biased towards praises of the one-party regime while speaking ill of the multi-party political system as in the States. One of the guidelines for the subject is to train students up basing on the principle of "understanding oneself, treating Hong Kong as home, relying on the Motherland, facing the world", which is more commonly known as indoctrination.
Isn't education something to teach one to think and reason?
While the government is turning the situation topsy-turvy, the protesters, especially the anxious and infuriated parents, will show their colours for sure until there is a definitive answer from the government.
