Reconsideration of the Coexistence of Buddhist Temple Education and State Education in Xishuangbanna, China
Li, Jing; Moore, Danièle
British Journal of Religious Education, v36 n2 p139-154 2014
This paper presents data gathered in interviews with 29 informants in Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan, China--an administrative region with Theravada Buddhist religious identity. The data highlight tensions between the traditional faith-based education provided by Theravada Buddhist temple schools and secular state education. The paper concludes that a negotiated balance between traditional faith-based education and the state education system would best serve the interests of the ethnic minority in the region.
