On Thursday’s Backchat: Hong Kong educators warn that some schools may have to close in the face of an increasing exodus of students due to the current wave of emigration.
Student numbers are already down more than 15,000 compared with a year earlier — and many more are expected to leave over the summer.
So what can schools do to stem the exodus?
Also on Thursday’s show, walk-in Covid vaccinations for the elderly.
