「政策對話及參與」系列

社會流動與跨代貧窮

 

社區發展動力培育舉辦「政策對話及參與」系列,旨在促進公民社會溝通交流。今次我們邀請了關愛基金專責小組主席羅致光博士,作為本次活動的對話嘉賓。

關愛基金推行了多個援助項目去支援弱勢社群及基層家庭,社會普遍認為,平等的教育機會能夠有助提升他們的社會及經濟地位。最近基金推出名為「為特殊學校清貧學生提供額外交通津貼」的新項目,但究竟這些支援能否真的保證清貧學享有平等的教育機會?究竟政府應如何透過增加社會流動性,以打破基層跨代貧窮的宿命?

Engagement Evening

with

Dr. Law Chi-kwong

The Chairperson of the Community Care Fund Task Force

Intergenerational Poverty and Social Mobility

 

Engagement Evening, the public engagement series organized by Community Development Initiative, is honored to have Dr. Law Chi-kwong, The Chairperson of the Community Care Fund Task Force, to be our keynote speaker.

The Community Care Fund has launched various assistance programmes to help the underprivileged and low income families. Many believe equal opportunity of education can improve the social and economic status of the disadvantaged. Recently, a new assistance programme of “extra travel subsidy for needy special school students” has been launched. But the question is whether this kind of programme can really ensure equal opportunity of education. What should the government do to increase social mobility to tackle intergenerational poverty?
