Minority Education in China - Balancing Unity and Diversity in an Era of Critical Pluralism, Paperback / softback Book

Minority Education in China - Balancing Unity and Diversity in an Era of Critical Pluralism Paperback / softback

Description

This edited volume brings together essays by leading experts exploring different aspects of ethnic minority education in China: among these are the challenges associated with bilingual and trilingual education in Xinjiang and Tibet; Han Chinese reaction to preferential minority education; the role of inland boarding schools for minority students, and the mediation of religion and culture in multiethnic schools.

The book covers these topics from a range of different perspectives: Uyghur, Tibetan, Korean, Mongolian, Han, and those of the West, combining empirical field studies with theoretical approaches.

Previous scholarship has explored the pedagogical and policy challenges of minority education in China; this is the first volume to recast these problems in the light of the Chinese party-state's efforts to create ethnic harmony and stability through a shared sense of national belonging.
