"Solo or ensemble?" Bilingual education in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The bilingual education in Xinjiang, a Chinese minority region, is discussed through the lens of policy web theory, in which power, voice, and the interaction of policies at different levels are examined. In the Joshee and Johnson (2005) policy web theory, the ring of policy represents policy made at different levels. The thread represents the interconnection between different levels. The joint point of thread and ring is the policy text, which suggests that sharing focus among different levels is possible instead of the levels being complementary. The policy text at the joint point of thread and ring shows the historical struggle ever since ( Joshee and Joshon, 2005). The open place between rings and thread is the place for people involved in the policy-making process.
Through analysis of relevant literature, this paper concludes that: 1) Bilingual education in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is surrounded and influenced by different policies at multiple levels of a bureaucratic system; 2) The relationship among these policies is dynamic against the macro-national context; 3) the basis of the bilingual education policy web in Xinjiang is changing along with the historical stages in modern Chinese history; 4) The central government plays a significant role in the formation of and changes in bilingual education policy in the centralized political system of the Chinese context; 5) The voice of the people, especially minority people, is not that significant in the policy process, which partially explains why the effect of bilingual education policy is not as significant as expected.
