In 2000, the Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) gave government schools the freedom to design their own curricula and decide on student admission processes. Under the terms of the DSS, schools would charge fees payable by the parents and would also receive government subsidies. Therefore, DSS schools were more affordable than private and international schools and provided better services than the government schools. This case examines the long-term implications of this scheme.
