Title:Asian Pacific Islander American Students and U.S. high schools
Organization:Alliance for Excellent Education
Short Description:Because Asian American students as a group score higher than any other race on proficiency tests, many observers assume that there is no need to be concerned about their collective academic progress. Asian American students are often stereotyped as the “model minority,” and it is assumed that most of them do extremely well academically, especially in math and science. This stereotype causes psychological, social, and emotional problems for many Asian American students.
Annotation:Because Asian American students as a group score higher than any other race on proficiency tests, many observers assume that there is no need to be concerned about their collective academic progress. Asian American students are often stereotyped as the “model minority,” and it is assumed that most of them do extremely well academically, especially in math and science. This stereotype causes psychological, social, and emotional problems for many Asian American students. Furthermore, it often cloaks the complicated and diverse barriers that many members of this student population encounter, including immigration and refugee status, limited English proficiency, and poverty, as well as the experiences of ethnic subgroups who do not fare as well academically. Because of the lack of disaggregated data, the Asian American statistics primarily reflect East Asians’ overall academic successes and obscure the scholastic struggles of groups such as Southeast Asians and Pacific Islanders.
