Entrance Exam Admission Policies on Ethnic Minorities and Equal Educational Rights for Minorities in China
Weiwei, Lang
Chinese Education and Society, v43 n4 p41-48 Jul-Aug 2010
In 1977, the Chinese government reinstated the national unified college entrance exam enrollment system. As a part of this system, the government also implemented preferential policies on the enrollment of minorities that authorized the increase or decrease of exam scores and enrollment cutoff points; the policies were therefore seen as discriminatory. Although these policies were the expression of minorities' right to an education, some questioned their appropriateness. How did these policies affect minorities' educational rights? I address these topics in this paper. (Contains 3 notes and 1 table.)
