The schooling of Chinese children in Portugal

The research aims to analyze the schooling process of Chinese children attending basic schools in our country, namely, their performance in school, compared to other groups: native students and students with other immigrant backgrounds.

Based on official data from the Ministry of Education the results obtained standardized tests are compared by these groups of students, taking into account their social and academic profile. In addition to the gender differences, the differences in the parents' birthplace, the level of schooling achieved by the parents and the birthplace and nationality of the Chinese students will be taken into account.

The results will be discussed in the light of the latest research results on the educational performance of descendants of populations of Chinese origin carried out in different countries on different continents.
