Creating a Harmonious Society

Education and Social Inequality in China Elite Groups Perpetuating Their Privileged Status

Chunguang Wang

Abstract

At a time of growing economic and social inequality in China, there is a tendency to invoke education as a great leveller but that rose-tinted view fails to take cognisance of the role of entrenched vested interests which are in fact nurturing educational disparities precisely because education helps to perpetuate them. Current arrangements in education in China can thus hardly help achieve or promote a harmonious society.
