Fangsheng Zhu’s dissertation, “Access, Selection, and Exit: Getting Education in Chinese Cities,” investigates institutions in getting education in contemporary China. He hypothesizes that institutions determine which parental characteristics matter with regard to the overall amount of educational inequality and that these institutions originate from and evolve through political, economic, and spatial dynamics beyond education.
