Expansion and Equality of Access to Higher Education in China
Ding, Xiaohao
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n2 p151-162 Apr 2007
This paper explores the role of socio-economic status in determining access to higher education over time. Findings show that the overall equality of higher education opportunity has improved because of the inclusion of more marginal students into lower-tier higher education institutions (HEIs); however, students from higher socio-economic status have benefited disproportionably from the expansion in elite universities. A brief discussion of the potential implications is presented.
