Case Studies of Sani Yi in Yunnan
This chapter focuses on the current policy and delivery of minority education in Yunnan. It identifies the most recent Yunnan government policy developments in this area, reports on the implementation of these policies through the authors’ visits to a number of schools and then looks at the current results from a recent historic perspective over the period from Tsung’s first field study in 1997 to now and draws conclusions on progress over that period. This chapter contains a brief introduction to the background of Yunnan, followed by language policies issued by the government in recent years, and reports on case studies in three schools.
