This study compares the education status of migrant children in China and the United States, with a specific focus on K–12 education. Migrant children, also known as children moving from rural areas to urban areas, and the children of immigrant families face unique challenges in both countries, including regional prejudice brought by Hukou policy in China and racial and social class inequality in the US. Using a comparative approach, this study examines the similarities and differences in the education of migrant children from political, cultural, and economic perspectives. Through this analysis, the study identifies existing problems and proposes solutions to improve the education of migrant children in both countries. Ultimately, this study highlights the importance of addressing the education status of migrant children in promoting social equity and justice.
