Cancellation fo teacher registration

We're waiting for WY CHAN to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Education Bureau,

I refer to my earlier application (no. 75/2020) and would like to make follow-up enquiry.

In the past 10 years (2010 to
2019), the EDB handled a total of 585 cases relating to the suspected
professional misconduct of teachers, of which the registration of 72
teachers were cancelled. Please provide descriptions on the nature AND seriousness of the misconduct / incompetence of the 72 teachers leading to cancellation of their teacher registration, say, teaching inaccurate information to students and withholding teaching materials from the school.

I would like to reiterate that I do not need to know the name of the schools and the teachers concerned so there should be no privacy concern. I also do not need you to provide a copy of relevant documents. Just the aforesaid descriptions will do. Thanks.

Yours faithfully,

WY CHAN

Dear WY Chan,
Code on Access to Information
Application No. 75/2020
I refer to your follow-up enquiry under the Code on Access to Information
received on 7 November 2020.

All along, the Education Bureau (EDB) has been handling cases involving
registered teachers committing malpractice or professional misconduct with
a serious attitude and strict standards.  When reviewing a teacher’s
registration status, the EDB mainly considers the severity of the
misconduct or malpractice committed by the teacher, such as whether it
involves offences of a sexual nature, the impact or possible impact of his
words and deeds on students’ safety and well-being, etc.  For cases of
serious nature, the teacher’s registration may be cancelled.

        In the past 10 years (2010 to 2019), 72 teachers had their
registration cancelled by the EDB.  They were mainly involved in having
committed a sexual or sex-related offence, a fraud-related offence or some
minor but repeated offences (e.g. operating an unregistered school), or
having serious integrity problem (e.g. cheating in the Territory-wide
System Assessment), etc.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Suki CHEUK
for Secretary for Education
