Images of chinese language youth with their heads buried in books for hours on finish, getting ready for high-stakes checks, dominate understandings of chinese language adolescence in either China and the West. yet what approximately adolescents who're no longer at the route to educational good fortune? What occurs to early life who fail the state's high-stakes tests? What many—even in China—don't discover is that as much as half the nation's formative years are flunked out of the tutorial schooling method after ninth grade.

Class Work explores the results for early life who've failed those assessments, via an exam of 2 city vocational faculties in Nanjing, China. via a detailed examine the scholars' backgrounds, stories, the universities they attend, and their trajectories into the team, T.E. Woronov explores the worth structures in modern China that stigmatize formative years in city vocational faculties as "failures," and the political and fiscal constructions that funnel them into working-class futures. She argues that those marginalized scholars and colleges supply a privileged window into the continued, advanced intersections among the socialist and capitalist modes of creation in China this present day and the quick transformation of China's towns into post-industrial, service-based economies. This booklet advances the concept that city vocational colleges are usually not only "holding tanks" for tutorial mess ups; in its place they're incipient websites for the formation of a brand new operating class.
