Abstract

Other Learning Experiences was introduced in Hong Kong as one of the compulsory subjects of the New Secondary School Curriculum in 2009 intended to provide students with exposure for balanced and whole-person development parallel with normal classroom learning. This study aims at evaluating the effectiveness of this initiation. The survey found out that there were great deviations of actual implementation against the Education Authority’s original intention throughout four years trial. It demonstrated clearly that the successful implementation of an education policy requires a paradigm shift of stake holders’ belief instead of top down approach from the policy makers.
