Editor's note: Teng Aqing is a Beijing mother and a vocal opponent of allowing the children of migrant workers to take the national college entrance exam in her city. Her education blog has been viewed more than 4 million times. She spoke on condition of using her online pseudonym for fear of reprisals.
If the policy is changed and children from migrant families can take the same exam with native kids, it will harm both the capital and those rural regions.
I'm a third-generation Beijinger, born and raised, but I love the countryside. I rented a courtyard in Huairou (on the capital's rural outskirts) years ago and I love to stay there. So I can speak as a city and countryside resident.
