Abstract:

This paper will highlight some of the major findings in the 2009 ICCS Study, in respect to HKSAR. In the main, Hong Kong students possess top proficiency of civic knowledge in the world. As distinctive from all other participating jurisdictions, the civic knowledge of the students is not affected by their family or immigration background. Hong Kong students have good trust in civic institutions both locally and nationally, but not towards the media and the political parties. Hong Kong students are just above average in their support towards equal gender political rights, interest in politics and citizenship efficacy. Hong Kong students possess multiple nation identity, feel equally proud of the HKSAR and the motherland, have a strong sense of duty to nation, but struggle (with mixed endorsements) between the competing demands between self interests and national interests. On the whole, Hong Kong students feel proud of their country and they love their country, sometimes to the degree that they are for the country, whether right or wrong. These findings may reflect an equitable education system that allow students to out perform themselves without constrained by their family and immigration background. HK students’ civic knowledge was also not correlated to the number of books at home. Given that citizenship education is not taught by a formal curriculum, the above findings may suggest the effectiveness of informal citizenship education in Hong Kong.
