Home Schooling in China seeks to provide a better understanding of the social movement of home schooling in China. In this book, the author addresses several major themes of home education, including marketization, social stratification, culture, religion, Confucianism, gender policy, gender, and home schooling.

This book draws a broad attention to the in-depth information to the relationship of marketisation, social stratification, and home education in China. It offers an implication for a better understanding not only for influences of religion (e.g. Christianity) but also the effects of Confucianism on the growth of home education in China. With a strong theoretical foundation, the book comprehensively untangles the key possible factors that shape China’s social movement of home education. The book offers a background on theories and research methodology, as well as reports on empirical studies that analyse the influences of marketisation on home schooling, social stratification, and the development of home schooling.

This book is ideal reading for academics, researchers, and postgraduate students in the fields of Confucianism, social class, gender, and education in China.
