Education Bureau


Education Bureau

The Education Bureau (zh-tp|t=教育局|p=Jiàoyùjú; Jyutping: gaau3 yuk6 guk6; abbr. EDB) is responsible for education policies in Hong Kong.

The bureau is headed by the Secretary for Education and oversees the Secretariat, University Grants Committee and Student Financial Assistance Agencies. It also works closely with other departments for any joint decision, for instance with Hong Kong Observatory in determining cancellation of classes due to severe weather conditions.

Prior to 2007, the bureau was named Education and Manpower Bureau (zh-tp|t=教育統籌局|p=Jiàoyùtǒngchóujú; Jyutping: gaau3 yuk6 tung2 cau4 guk6; abbr. EMB). The manpower portfolio was transferred to the new Labour and Welfare Bureau in July 2007, according to the proposal tabled by Chief Executive Donald Tsang after he was successfully re-elected.
