Abstract: Abstract This study investigates teachers' perception towards the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC) under the School-based Management (SBM) in Hong Kong and factors that influence their acceptance of the IMC. The research findings are based on nearly six hundred questionnaires and the post-survey interviews of five teacher- representatives. Based on the data analysis of the research, teachers are in support of including parents, teachers and alumnus to work hand in hand for the betterment of school but are reserved to the registration of the school management committee into an IMC. Secondly, teachers are eager to participate in school management and wish to increase the number of teacher-representative in an IMC. Thirdly, teachers perceive IMC as an administrative tool to improve school management rather than enhancing students' learning outcome. Fourthly, teachers hesitate to take the post of teacher manager due to unpredictable workload and legal liability. Finally, teachers teaching in Christian schools generally had a low level of acceptance of including parent manager, teacher manager, manager from community and the registration of the IMC. Teachers in Hong Kong generally prop up the reshuffle of school management hierarchy. Three recommendations should be highlighted to release teachers' anxiety. First, it is a time to take a break for teachers. Second, teacher-representatives should have the rights to choose to be teacher managers with voting rights or just teacher- representative without voting rights, in order to avoid litigation. Finally, registration of the IMC should be optional for high-banding schools. iv DOI: 10.5353/th_b3532048 Subjects: School-based management - China - Hong KongHigh school teachers - China - Hong Kong - AttitudesElementary school teachers - China - Hong Kong - Attitudes
