Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam claimed t⋯⋯hat Liberal Studies was "problematic from day one". Lam also blamed that "critical thinking" was being taken as "saying no to everything".*
[*Editor's note: Liberal studies was a compulsory subject introduced in Hong Kong since 2009 by the first Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa whose adminstration included Carrie Lam as Secretary for Development.]
The authorities announced on Nov 25, 2020 a make-over of Liberal Studies in Hong Kong's schools. These include a new curriculum with an emphasis on China and the Basic Law; changing the grading system from a scoring system to a pass/fail assessment; and having the government vet all textbooks that would be used.
In a radio programme, Lam also blamed foreign media for "hurting the image of the SAR": "I don't think foreign media reports are objective and fair, especially those about Hong Kong."
Lam denied that the changes to Liberal Studies is a political move that overrides professionalism. She insisted that the subject has "always been causing controversies" in the past 10 years.
