Introduction: School counselling in Hong Kong schools and cultural influence

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

This chapter aims to provide a local and cultural context for understanding school guidance in Hong Kong schools. To specify the local context of Hong Kong schools, first, the education system and aims of education will be demonstrated. It will then illustrate the school counselling at the policy and school levels. In considering that the objective and organization of school counselling can only be fully understood with an explication of its cultural influence upon its context, finally, the discussion will focus on the influence of Chinese culture on the school arrangement for school counselling.
