Chinese Development, Education, and Migration - Rural-to-Urban Migration: Challenges for China's Development

Scott Rozelle, Professor,Stanford University

150 million rural Chinese citizens--roughly 4 times the population of California--are moving into cities. Over 30% of them are school-aged. Although China's economy is growing how the country grapples with migration and education will determine its future.

 Join us for two events on  May 18, Wednesday 6:00 - 7:00pm at Cubberley 130 and May 19, Thursday 7:00 - 8:30pm at EAST House. Learn how migration, education, and Chinese development are linked and learn how to get involved in new research or service opportunities in this exciting field.

Stanford is home to some pioneering work that is contributing to policy change in China. We especially invite students who have interests in comparative education, policy change, impact evaluation, and migration to attend.
