DukeEngage in China – Beijing

Rachel was a DukeEngage fellow in 2012, where she taught at the Dandelion Middle School, a non-profit school for migrant children who have moved from rural areas throughout China to Beijing. She also worked on a project to draft a bi-lingual report of the school’s social history by interviewing school staff, students, and volunteers and researching Beijing’s migrant policies and community.

Upon returning to Duke University, she designed and co-taught a seminar class, ‘Social Inequality in China: Education, Minorities, and the Achievement Gap,’ to the next cohort of DukeEngage fellows.
