In China, there are 12.95 million school-age migrant children, which account for 10% of the total school-age children population. In their new urban homes, the migrant children face significant challenges ranging from social exclusion and discrimination to poverty and lack of access to basic services.
In terms of education, the migrant children are not able to enjoy equal access to quality basic education. Many are studying in private schools for migrant children where teacher’s qualifications and school capacities are much lower than those in public schools.
