This paper aims to identify the perceptions of primary school teachers regarding current curriculum innovation in Hong Kong: the Target Oriented Curriculum (TOC). It examines the issues regarding the context, concept and practice of TOC. Focusing on the perceptions of teachers teaching Chinese, English & Mathematics, it attempts to clarify some issues related to the implementation of TOC and the improvement of relevant teacher education programmes. When changes take place in Hong Kong after it becomes part of China, a high priority of concern should focus on education. It is very important that TOC should meet the needs of students and the society. Copyright © 1999 Australian Curriculum Studies Association Inc.
