Learning from Migrant Education: A Case Study of the Schooling of Rural Migrant Children in Beijing
Goodburn, Charlotte
International Journal of Educational Development, v29 n5 p495-504 Sep 2009
This paper focuses on the educational opportunities available to rural migrant children in Beijing. On the basis of fieldwork conducted in migrant communities in 2004-2005, I conclude that administrative and financial barriers, as well as discrimination, prevent migrant children from entering state schools. I discuss the quality of education available in unlicensed private schools, followed by an analysis of the possible reasons for the state's exclusion of migrant children from state schools and its hostility to migrants' self-provision of education.
