12-Year Free Education and Small-Class Teaching

117.     As announced in last year's Policy Address, we will offer free senior secondary education from the 2008-09 school year. Under the new senior secondary education structure, free education will be extended from nine to 12 years, and the additional expenditure on education for each school year will amount to $1.2 billion. The Policy Address has also announced that small-class teaching will be implemented in primary schools in phases from the 2009-10 school year. We will provide adequate resources in future Budgets to support this policy.
