A concern group, Unison, which assists ethnic minorities here says it may be forced to take the government to court if it doesn't come-up with a plan to help children of ethnic minorities learn Chinese.

Last month, the Equal Opportunities Commission accused the Education Bureau of failing to support ethnic minority students integrate into local mainstream schools.

The Commission put forward nine recommendations to the authorities.

The Executive Director of Unison, Fermie Wong, said their group is giving the government a year to respond to the recommendations.

In the meantime she said they're seeking legal advice on a possible judicial review.
