Educational inequality and inequity has been the cry of all stakeholders in the educational development in every country. China is of no exception. The barriers of education development in China are gradually being uprooted by solid and sound policies. That notwithstanding, there are still few challenges that demands a critical look. The basic aim of conducting this study is to analyze the barriers and challenges of educational development in China with emphasis placed on rural-urban migrant residents. The study employed a qualitative method to analyze its findings by conducting document analysis. The result showed that the National College Entrance examination and its associated rules remain a challenge and barrier to rural migrant children receiving education in urban schools. It is recommended in this study that the government should stipulate clearer laws that will ensure that there is minimal educational disparity among Chinese residents.
