Parental involvement and university enrollment among ethnic Koreans in China: An “interacting multiple capitals” framework

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Capital-embedded parental involvement in education is essential in enhancing university enrollment and maximizing the educational potentials for equality and excellence. We propose an “Interacting Multiple Capitals (IMC)” framework and conduct semi-structured interviews to explore how multiple capitals in interplay affect ethnic Korean students’ transitions to university in China. Widening minority groups’ participation in tertiary education carries great promises for not only individuals’ upward socioeconomic mobility, also intergenerational cohesion and national competitiveness. This presentation will provide in-depth insights into the dynamic process through which the compounding capital resources via parental involvement become translated into university enrollment.
