Multicultural Education and the Acculturation of Students in the Interior-Region Xinjiang Senior Middle School Classes
Luo, Jihua
Chinese Education and Society, v43 n3 p22-34 May-Jun 2010
Starting in 2000, the state began to set up interior-region Xinjiang senior middle school classes (the Xinjiang Class) in developed cities in China's interior ("neidi"). Cross-cultural adaptation is a very important issue for students from Xinjiang if they are to study and live in China's interior regions. Based on the perspective of cultural pluralism, this paper offers some educational strategies, against the background of multicultural education, to schools in China's interior that run the Xinjiang Class program, in the hope of providing them with some references for bringing about beneficial acculturation. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
