Last night, a tutor uploaded a photo of her student’s homework online, which is about Hong Kong’s housing problems, and said she saw nothing wrong with her student’s answers. Most netizens also think that the kid correctly answered the causes of the city’s housing problems. However, the kid’s teacher crossed out the answers.
Question 1: Why does Hong Kong have housing shortage?
(The question supposedly has only two answers. Therefore, the kid put the politically “wrong” answers on top and “correct” answers on bottom. The teacher bracketed the “correct” answers, telling the kid that they are the only correct answers.)
a. Developer hegemony (wrong)/Hong Kong has more mountains than flat lands (correct)
b. Tycoons from China speculate in Hong Kong’s property market (wrong)/Hong Kong population increases continuously (correct)
Lo: How come the kid needs corrections? A smart kid is brainwashed because of this.
Lam: Hey, the kid answered question 1 correctly!
石: The kid is wrong because he/she doesn’t know how to ingratiate him/herself with China and Hong Kong tycoons.
史記 (a blogger): Speaking the truth will lead to point deduction. Well, this is common sense.
Samsoon: Because the kid wrote the truth. Hong Kong government, the Education Bureau, Hong Kong tycoons and powers inside China don’t like it. Therefore, the kid’s answers are regarded as wrong.
Ask yourself, everyone. How would you want the students to answer the question in future? If you still chose to remain silent or patch up a quarrel, the question is going to be banned in the imminent future……
