Does the implementation of DSS means the government will take a back seat in providing education?

The DSS will not affect the government’s commitment to free and compulsory education, and no child will be compelled to attend a DSS school. Currently, places provided by DSS schools for both primary and secondary education only account for 1.2% and 5.8% respectively. While most of the government schools will stick to the present principles, i.e. government-run or government-aided, it is assured that the government will continue its effort to enhance the quality of education by placing a substantial amount of resources for this end.
