Dr Gao Fang (Education University of Hong Kong) explores how equity of education affects ethnic and linguistic minority groups in China.

Equity of education has become a prerequisite for ‘legitimate peripheral participation’ for ethnic and linguistic minorities in China.

The ethnic Koreans in northeast China are viewed as a ‘model minority’ while the South Asians in Southeast China (specifically Hong Kong) are stereotyped as ‘non-Chinese-speakers’.

This talk compares the experiences of the two minority groups and examines this from the perspective of power in an inequitable world.
