Moving Past Cultural Homogeneity: Suggestions for Comparisons of Students' Educational Outcomes in the United States and China
Peverly, Stephen T.
Psychology in the Schools, v42 n3 p241-249 Mar 2005
Based on observations of the Chinese educational system in the summer of 2002, I argue that comparisons of the performance of students in the United States and China, and by implication, of students in the United States and other East Asian countries, have been too homogeneous. I discuss four variables that could be included in future research between the United States and China (and by implication, in all U.S./East Asian research): urban versus rural education (SES), public versus private schools, China's ethnic minorities, and the education of boys and girls. Recommendations for future research are provided. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
