Abstract
Taking a public school designating recruitment of migrant children in Nanjing City in China as a case, this paper analyzes the schooling life of migrant children under culture production theory. Study shows "culture of self-abandonment" prevailing among migrant children in weak public schools. Different from what counter-school culture implies, they still believe in the value and significance of education, knowledge and diploma. They are more self-abandoned than resisting learning, challenging authority or attacking classmates, while they don't abandon themselves willingly, for they just feel hopes are dashed, which is rooted in "reality constrains and influence". This culture plays a profound and diversified influence on migrant children, which will bring no benefits to education mobility but bring unexpected results to non-migrant workers.
