Full description: 

This book investigates the implementation of the education policy for migrant children, arguing that it has been selectively implemented: while some policy themes have been effectively implemented, others have not. Four factors underlie this selective implementation: specificity of policy goals, funding for education, local incentives in an exam-oriented education system, and intergroup relationships between migrant and urban children.

Chapter 1 Introduction.- Chapter 2 Policy Implementation Theories.- Chapter 3 Inter-Governmental Relationships and Policy Implementation.- Chapter 4 Funding Allocation and Policy Implementation.- Chapter 5 Exam-Oriented Education System and Policy Implementation.- Chapter 6 Intergroup Relations and Policy Implementation.- Chapter 7 Conclusion.
