    Basic Law and National Education / Academic's time-sheet scheme

    On Friday's Backchat, national education. The controversial topic is returning to the headlines with calls for Basic Law study to be added to the curriculum in schools, claims that education since 1997 has failed to foster a sense of Chinese identity, that colonial education amounted to brainwashing, and now a call from the new Chief Executive for all kindergarten pupils to learn 'I am Chinese'. Why is this emerging now, and how have things changed since 2012? Do you agree with the CE that we can let children learn more about Hong Kong’s history, culture, politics and social development, and at the same time make them have their national identity? How do we teach the Basic Law? After 9.20, should academics clock in? (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, or email backchat@rthk.hk )

    Domestic Helpers – More Helpers from Cambodia / Cigarette Packages' Warning

    On Wednesday's Backchat, more domestic helpers. It's been announced that the first batch of helpers from Cambodia will arrive in Hong Kong in the autumn, the first from that country, in a move linked to the Belt and Road initiative. It's estimated that one in three households with children already have helpers - why are there so many in Hong Kong, and who are the winners and losers? Is it just a matter of tapping unskilled labour from countries too poor to complain? How do other places manage? After 9.20, warnings on cigarette packets get bigger.
