Abstract

Enacting social justice is an imperative issue concerning educators around the world. Like many countries, Hong Kong schools serve a diverse mix of students and many face the challenges of complex socio-cultural changes such as low birth rate and a hybrid of Western and Confucian cultures. This study aims to examine three Hong Kong principals’ perception of social justice and how they enacted social justice by (re)shaping multicultural education in high-needs schools
