Abstract:

A system of education designed for a religious, racial, or ethnic minority group distinct from the greater society in which it functions is neither a recent innovation nor is it a phenomenon encountered only in one part of the world. It has existed in basically two forms 1 that which is provided for by the dominant group, often to enforce separateness, as has been exemplified by racially segregated schools in some countries and 2 that which is provided for by the minority group itself for the purpose of maintaining political and cultural cohesion and separateness within its own community. It is this second form which the overseas Chinese have established throughout Southeast Asia.
