Based on the observations in Hong Kong and the Region, this chapter aims to analyze the reform syndrome, bottle-neck effects and their impacts on teachers and school education and highlight the direction of new developments. In a context of globalization, the experiences of educational reforms in Hong Kong particularly in the past decade may provide a good case for understanding the dynamics of educational reforms and drawing theoretical and practical implications for research, policy formulation and implementation not only in Hong Kong but also in other international communities.
