This volume focuses on policies and practices in the education of China's national minorities with the purpose of assessing the goals and impact of state-sponsored education for China's non-Han peoples. The essays in the four sections of this book examine cultural challenges to state schooling, the extent of educational provision in minority areas, the perspectives of Tibetan and Uyghur minorities toward state education, along with providing case studies of four national minorities. The book makes the point that despite the authoritarian character of China's state schooling, diversity reigns.
