China Embraces Assimilationist Approach to Ethnic Minorities

SINGAPORE—After launching experiments aimed at more forcefully assimilating ethnic minorities in remote regions, China’s Communist Party has moved subtly but decisively to make cultural assimilation the central tenet of its policy for managing minority populations nationwide.

An updated blueprint for childhood development released last week has quietly scrapped wording that guaranteed the rights of minority children to be educated in their native language. In its place is a new line calling for greater emphasis on the teaching of the national language with an eye toward “deepening the progress of ethnic unity in education.”
