In Minority Students in East Asia: Government Policies, School Practices, and Teacher Responses, edited by JoAnn Phillion, Ming Tak Hue, and Yuxiang Wang, the chapter authors discuss their research on the experiences of minority students in schools from the elementary grades to higher education in mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The educational issues of minority students are often neglected in the literature and in practice, and this issue is emerging as a worldwide phenomenon. Due to the focus on economy and trade, social and educational conditions that have resulted from globalization, particularly issues pertaining to the education, language, and other human rights of minority groups, receive less attention. Moreover, in many parts of East Asia, countries traditionally view themselves as single-ethnicity countries and do not have a strong agenda on minority rights. Although there are specifi c provisions in the law for the preservation of minority rights, these are often ignored or only partially implemented in practice.
