In 1984 and 2000, respectively, the Party Central Committee and the state council decided to establish the Tibet Class and the Xinjiang Class in some interior provinces and municipalities ("neidi") to promote economic development and social progress in the motherland's frontier regions as well as to ensure state security and consolidate border defense. These decisions initiated a new model of running interior-region schools oriented toward assisting ethnic minority education. It was also an effective policy and a major measure for using the economic and educational advantages of the developed interior regions and organizing the developed interior regions to intensify the efforts for assisting education in ethnic border regions. The Tibet Class and the Xinjiang Class in the interior regions are typical models of cross-cultural education. Studies targeted at the difficulties encountered by ethnic minority students during their interior-region ("neidi") cross-cultural studies and the implementation of effective countermeasures to overcome such difficulties are urgently required to bring greater efficiency to the special ethnic minority education policy of managing schools in the interior regions.
