This book is a labor of genuine concern over the school curriculum in Hong Kong by an internationally recognized educator. It represents a comprehensive account of curriculum development, implementation and interpretation. The author first invites the reader to examine critically how local and global issues influence the way in which the curriculum is constructed. Against this theoretical background, the author maintains a clear practical focus on the current educational reform agenda in Hong Kong. He reviews key issues affecting the school curriculum including IT, civic and moral education, equity issues and the concept of life-long learning.

Tailor-made to the special situation of Hong Kong, the book sheds light on the recent pressure for change and reform. The Hong Kong experience may also offer insights to those who are experiencing educational change in other parts of the Asia Pacific region.

Kerry J. Kennedy is the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Professional and Early Childhood Education of the Hong Kong Institute of Education. Prior to that he was Dean of Education and later Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic) at the University of Canberra. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University. He was made a fellow of the Australian College of Education in 1996 and a Life Member of the Australian Curriculum Studies Association in 2001.
