Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the differences in accessibility to educational resources and the influencing factors, both social factors and family factors, and discusses the social consequences of such differences on different children groups. It examines the accessibility to education of the four types of children in four different aspects including: accessibility to school, accessibility to high-quality education, level of student-teacher interaction, and student involvement and accessibility to extracurricular educational resources. Family is the most valuable social resource that children can acquire outside of school. By examining the accessibility to educational resources and family resources, it is found that urban children stand out by both criteria. Rural children did not have access to the "spilled over" resources from the cities, and thus had lower access to educational resources than urban children and migrant children. Urban children have the best access to all kinds of resources, while home-staying children had the worst.

Keywords: educational resources; extracurricular educational resources; family resources; high-quality education; home-staying children; rural children; student-teacher interaction; urban children
