Listen to the students! What would they say?

A student in the video: “It is crazy that in a system that is meant to teach and help the youth, they have no voice from the youth at all.”

I have spoken to Hong Kong students (primary to university) for years. The one question I always ask “do you like school”. The almost 100% response is “No”. Then I ask “why?”. They give their answer, what do you think it would be? Better yet, just ask some students or better yet your own child! Stand up students, stand up parents for your children’s sake.
