Abstract

Hong Kong has launched an ambitious reform of post-secondary education, expanding student access but also diversifying the missions of institutions and their finance. To illuminate repercussions for civil society, this article identifies three unresolved policy dilemmas. It then presents emergent trends in inequality of access to higher education through analysis of the 1981, 1991, and 2001 population censuses.
