ESF school offers fast-track way in for HK$400,000 Discovery College has introduced a priority waiting list – but not all parents are happy about the scheme

Dennis Chong:

The English Schools Foundation (ESF) has angered parents by introducing a fast-track system for its private school in Discovery Bay, in which parents can get priority on the waiting list by agreeing to pay HK$400,000 if their child is accepted.
The ESF started the system for “nomination rights” on Thursday and said it had been introduced for parents seeking to enrol children at Discovery College from the next academic year.
