I speak to hundreds of aspiring university students in Hong Kong each year. Their concerns include: Not enough student places for applicants. Students are required to study non stop as they get closer to examinations for entrance. They are told by teachers they must study extra to get the best chance. They are told that they will have no future without going to the right school or having university educations. They are punished if they have any objections to the schools, teachers or parents. All are abuses and falsehoods in partiality and have created psychological stresses beyond imaginations or understandings of young students in Hong Kong.
