Part of the Education in the Asia-Pacific Region: Issues, Concerns and Prospects book series (EDAP, volume 43)

Abstract

This chapter documents power relationships in public school admission by analyzing changes in stakeholder interactions with public schools. It also illustrates a framework of multilayered inequality/stratified engagement of stakeholders in Zexiao . The discourse analysis is based on data collected from written and spoken records about public school admission, including newspaper articles and policy documents from the 1980s to the 2000s.
