Inclusive Education Policy in the Hong Kong Primary Music Classroom
Wong, Marina Wai-yee; Chik, Maria Pik-yuk
Arts Education Policy Review, v117 n2 p130-140 2016
An education reform policy and inclusive education policy have been implemented in Hong Kong for over a decade. As more students with special educational needs have entered the mainstream education system under these policies, Hong Kong's primary music classrooms offer a site where three policies interact--the education reform policy entitled "Learning to Learn," the policy of inclusive education, and the undeclared "policy" of making savings in the government budget. This article seeks to explore the results of the interaction of these three policies. A qualitative study was carried out to investigate the views of Hong Kong primary school music teachers on the policy of inclusion in relation to music teaching. Insufficient support in inclusive learning in "non-core" subjects, such as music, is evidenced.
