Cross-Cultural Socialization at Tibetan Classes (Schools) in the Interior: An Empirical Analysis
Guo, Longyan
Chinese Education and Society, v43 n3 p73-96 May-Jun 2010
Education by means of the Tibetan Classes (schools) in "neidi," or China's interior regions (or the Tibet Class), was a creative measure in the history of China's ethnic minority education, and the cross-cultural growth and experiences of the Tibetan students as they went to school in China's interior regions was of special significance for the modernization of Tibetans. This paper analyzes the process of anticipatory socialization ("yuqi shehui hua") of the students of the Tibet Class in terms of the special nature of the three most important entities of socialization--the family, the peer group, and the school--as they complete their process of socialization in the cross-cultural environment of China's interior regions; the article defines the results of their cross-cultural socialization using the Tibetan students' self-awareness as the main index of evaluation. (Contains 12 tables and 2 notes.)
