Abstract

The Hong Kong government focused its education policy on improving the quality of education. Meanwhile, the features of quality management improvement implemented in Hong Kong primary schools include ‘values and duties’, ‘systems and teams’, ‘resources and changes’, and ‘meeting pupil needs and empowering staff’. The purposes of this study are to examine the relationships among ‘values and duties’, ‘systems and teams’, ‘resources and changes’, and ‘meeting pupil needs and empowering staff’. A quantitative, survey questionnaire was adopted in this study. A total of 322 respondents out of 83 primary schools responded to the questionnaire. The correlation and structural equation modeling were used to analyse the data. The finding shows that there are relationships among ‘values and duties’, ‘systems and teams’, ‘resources and changes’, and ‘meeting pupil needs and empowering staff’. The implications of the study are discussed finally.

Keywords: school management initiative, school-based management, quality management, value and duties, systems and teams, resources and changes, meeting pupil needs and empowering staff
