Rapid Urbanization and the Aspiration and Challenge of Second-Generation Urban-Rural Migrants
Jialing, Han
Chinese Education and Society, v45 n1 p77-83 Jan-Feb 2012
This article examines the features of second-generation rural migrants and the challenges facing them in terms of schooling and employment. There is a gap that is hard for them to step over: barriers against social inclusion. The article concludes that poverty tends to pass on to the next generation and fossilize. Therefore, it is vital to establish a just education and social system so that second-generation rural migrants realize intergenerational mobility through their personal efforts and education. (Contains 8 notes.)
