Abstract: Across two distinctive Chinese societies, this project could be characterized as a comparative study of the changes on school education and citizenship development in Hong Kong and Communist China from the late 1940s, just after the end of Second World War. Since the school education has been always playing a crucial role on “civic cohesion” in both Chinese societies, the present research aims to explore whether there are any correlation between school education and citizenship development in the context of Government policies and the subsequent implementations at schools level. Where relevant, some statistical data and findings would be presented as well for further elaboration. In this research project, four hypotheses are selected as the possible correlations between school education and citizenship development in Hong Kong and Communist China. As originally expected, the data and findings collected ultimately confirm all hypotheses as valid that the school education has always been changing along with citizenship development in both places, which will be further expounded in the chapter of discussion and analysis. As usual, a number of limitations of this project have been also highlighted for those forthcoming researchers continuing to explore the role of education and the development of citizenship in the academic world.
