A second approach was to promote schooling in its indigenous form. A third method was to adopt a mixed system, either by generating a synthesis of the two modes, or creating a parallel system, or some other, more complex, admixture. The most common form of schooling in colonial societies was a mixed mode, as the local administration of education (as opposed to direct control located in the colonial country) meant that the nature of schooling was often strongly influenced by the particular conditions of the colony and by those directly responsible for its provision (Kelly & Altbach 1984).

The Certificate in Kindergarten Education Course launched in 1995 is a benchmark only for kindergarten principals. However, Hong Kong provision did begin to catch up in the late 1990s. In Hong Kong, preschool teacher training was under government operation almost from the start. Although this implied a guarantee of minimum quality, resources were so limited that the capacity was too small to meet the needs. Since preschool education itself was in the hands of the private sector, and there was no legislation on professional requirements, the kindergartens mainly employed untrained teachers with low academic levels.

At the interface of East and West, schools in both places mark a key point where the twain do meet and thus represent either contested cultural territory or a melting pot. In the main, Macao has been influenced by educational practices and curriculum materials from Hong Kong rather than vice versa, but this sibling dependency has not simply been a one-way process throughout history. Especially in Hong Kong’s early years as a colony, many models and ideas were transplanted from Macao. Common issues have emerged, most notably fundamental questions concerning the provision, scope and orientation of primary and secondary schooling within the colonial and postcolonial contexts.
