Under the occupation of Japanese troops, education in Hong Kong was devastated. Most children of school age were unable to go to school. Schools in Hong Kong, that had 118,000 students in 1941, were able to enrol only 4000 in 1945.
Education under occupation focused on glorifying the Japanese war of invation. Japanese was made the official language in place of English, which was prohibited from being used at schools. Teaching of Japanese with four teaching hours per week was made mandatory. Students who performed poorly in Japanese were punished severely. In addition to forcing Hong Kong students to learn Japanese, the occupation authorities also made Japanes culture and rites subjects in primary and secondary schools. An example of this was the study of written works with themes such as Hong Kong Reborn, The March of a Rising Asia, From Hong Kong to Tokyo, The Japanese Swords, Monument of the Martyrs, Physical Education in Japan, and so on.
The occupation authorities made Japanese the official language of Hong Kong and renamed buildings and streets in Japanese. These did nothing but bringing confusion and inconvenience to all Hong Kong people, including teachers, students, and members of the general public.
Morever, life was extremely difficult under occupation. For most people, who lived at close to starvation, it was impossible pay for the education of their children. The result was massive dropouts from schools and children lost the opportunity to receive education.
However, the Japanese's attempt to enslave Hong Kong people through education achieved minimal success. The very few number of Japanese-run schools with a low enrollment about 10,000 students in 1941 meant that Japanese education could not effectively change anything in the Hong Kong people. The attempt to enslave Hong Kong people through education can be said to be a total failure.

Because Hong Kong and Japan Government decides as Japanese the official language, by Japanese name life Hong Kong's building and the street and so on, will cause the student teacher then, with Hong Kong person then, adapted with difficulty for a while.
The resident lives the poverty-stricken date to govern the time, the major part resident in the situation which the three meals a day discontinue, is unable to bear the expensive school expense radically, therefore the major part schoolchild has to be compelled to lay down the book bag, killed has accepted the education the golden opportunity.
However, enslaves the education influence to be limited actually, because at that time the Japanese people set up the school is few in number, when student population to 1941, also only then more than 10,000 people, depending on this few student population, solid with difficulty have the significant influence to the common people of Hong Kong, may say, Hong Kong and Japan Government has not been able to apply the effective enslavement educational policy to the people of Hong Kong.

Japanese aggressor troop rule Hong Kong under, educational undertaking wither, most of the right age children can enter school reading, student's number is fallen sharply 4,000 in 1945 by 118,000 in 1941.
At that time education lurch to beautify, middle and primary schools stipulate must teach 4 hours such as Japanese every week, the official language also substitutes English with Japanese naturally . English is forbidden using. Students not good of Japanese achievement, will suffer severe punishment . Besides Japanese Professor, every official school regard Japan's culture and Japan's courtesy as teaching subject if Chinese text content of department of higher primary school include " new born Hong Kong " main even more, " revitalize the inferior march ", " from Hong Kong to Tokyo " , " Japanese knife " , " loyal fairy tower " , " sports of Japan ",etc.
Because government , Japan of Hong Kong , determine Japanese as official language, with Japanese famous life building and street of Hong Kong,etc., can make arrive at that time student Mr., and at that time Hong Kong people, at one time difficult to meet. .
Citizens live a life on the day in privation to manage period, most citizens are in a situation that the breakfast,lunch and dinner is not continued , unable to afford the expensive tuition fee at all, so most pupils have to be forced to put down the schoolbag, have forfeited the great chance to accept the education.
But, it is limited to in fact enslave educational influence, because the school which people set up was few on day at that time, student at the between number and 1941, only 10,000 more than people also, whereby a small amount of student number, it is really difficult to have a great impact on general Hong Kong people, we can say , the government of Japan of Hong Kong can not implement effective enslaving the policy for education to Hong Kong people .
