Hong Kong teachers urge public broadcaster RTHK to restore deleted shows for use in classroom

by admin

A Hong Kong teachers’ union says educators are having difficulty preparing lesson materials after public broadcaster RTHK last month started deleting shows which are over a year old from the internet.

The Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union (HKPTU) on Wednesday published results of an online survey conducted between May 31 and June 7. Among the 586 primary and secondary teachers polled, 91.6 per cent said the removal of RTHK programmes caused them difficulty in putting together materials for teaching.

The questionnaire found that 78.9 per cent of the respondents had used current affairs programmes produced by the government-funded station, while 70.8 per cent said they had taught students using environmental shows by RTHK.
