Law vetoed for special needs students in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Education chief has recently vetoed a bill proposed to expand the coverage of Hong Kong Special Education Needs (SEN) policy. The bill was to expand the current SEN categories to include “mental impairment”, and “other impairments”. However, the main point of the objection to the bill was that the program may balloon to 2.6 billion HKD, and would burden the system with paperwork thereby neglecting students.

What do you think? Should they have accepted the bill?
