Crossing the Frontier to Inland China: Family Social Capital for Minority Uighur Students in Chinese Boarding Schools
Chen, Yangbin
Chinese Education and Society, v43 n1 p46-57 Jan-Feb 2010
This paper examines family influences on Uighur (a Muslim ethnic minority in northwestern China) students' experiences in Xinjiang classes in an inland China boarding school. Supported by the concept of family social capital, the paper argues that, although family structure becomes deficient for Uighur students away from home, their families can still facilitate their boarding school life through parental educational expectations, the influence of relatives, problem-solving advice, and institutional assistance. (Contains 9 notes.)
