The State’s Influence over Quality in Higher Education: Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

Eveline M. CALDWELL

Abstract

Developments in Hong Kong particularly related to the growth of interest in quality are compared with similar developments within higher education in Britain over the last 30 years with analysis of the reasons for the establishment, and subsequent abolition, of the binary system in Britain. Justification for the evaluation of British policies in providing insight into the Hong Kong situation is provided. Parallels and differences are found and analysed. Finally conclusions are drawn on how the state's view of quality is expressed in Hong Kong.

摘要

香港高等教育的發展,特別是愈來愈關注質素問題的情況,與英國過去三十年高等教育的類似發展作比較;並比較香港的情況,分析英國設立及繼而廢除雙體制的原因。關於評估英國的政策可助暸解香港的情況此一說法,亦提出論據。本文找出各種異同加以分析。最後,香港的教育當局如何提出對質素的意見,本文亦作出結論。
