HKFP | Primary school should apologise over reports it punishes students for speaking Cantonese
by Kris Cheng
Hong Kong activists have launched a petition urging a primary school to apologise over controversial reports that its students are punished for speaking Cantonese.
Earlier this month, broadcaster i-Cable spoke to students of the Xianggang Putonghua Yanxishe Primary School of Science and Creativity in Tin Shui Wai. The students told the news channel that, if they spoke Cantonese in class, they were reprimanded and told to write out lines as punishment.
