The introduction of modern education into a society which, in the past, did not have a formal education system, coupled with the three forces of globalized capitalism, the modernization of the state and the development of nationality minorities, is a dynamic process which has given rise to many difficulties. The modernization of the education of the Liangshan Yi has gone through four historic periods. This talk will introduce the history of modern education of the Liangshan Yi and some of problems Yi encountered. Professor Aga Rehamo, UW Visiting Scholar from Sichuan Normal University, Chengdu, China, offers reflections on the dilemma of modernizing education for the Yi ethnic minority people.
