The achievement, schooling, and the ethnic identities of Asian American students are among the core areas in the field of Asian American education, yet there is much that remains to be uncovered, verified, contradicted, and learned through sound research, especially as the Asian American population rapidly increases in size and in the diversification of its characteristics. The chapters in this book deal present cuttingedge work in these three areas and contain innovative perspectives, new qualitative quantitative data, and discussions of the implications of findings for educational policies, practices, and programs. These chapters cover such specific topics as academic achievement gaps between Asian American and White students, contemporary school experiences of Southeast Asians and of undocumented Asian American students, perspectives on teaching immigrant and refugee students, and the development of ethnic identities. This work is authored by wellknown higher education faculty as well as emerging scholars. Overall, this material represents a valuable, timely, and useful contribution to the literature on Asian Americans that will be of interest to faculty, administrators, policymakers, researchers, and students.

Asian American EducationAsian American Identities, Racial Issues, and Languages presents groundbreaking research that critically challenges the invisibility, stereotyping, and common misunderstandings of Asian Americans by disrupting "customary" discourse and disputing "familiar" knowledge. The chapters in this anthology provide rich, detailed evidence and interpretations of the status and experiences of Asian American students, teachers, and programs in K12 and higher education, including struggles with racism and other racerelated issues. This material is authored by nationallyprominent scholars as well as highlyregarded emerging researchers. As a whole, this volume contributes to the deconstruction of the image of Asian Americans as a model minority and at the same time reconstructs theories to explain their diverse educational experiences. It also draws attention to the cultural and especially structural challenges Asian Americans face when trying to make institutional changes. This book will be of great interest to researchers, teachers, students, and other practitioners and policymakers concerned with the education of Asian Americans as well as other peoples of color.

In this revision of her best-selling book, author Sonia Nieto explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education for students of all backgrounds. The book looks at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in today's classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, the fifth edition examines the lives of 19 real students who are affected by multicultural education, or a lack of it. Social justice is firmly embedded in this view of multicultural education, and teachers are encouraged to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities. Inservice and preservice teachers, principals, school administrators and anyone interested in multicultural education.

This in-depth examination: debunks the simplistic "culture of poverty" argument that is often used to explain the success of Asian Americans and the failure of other minorities; illustrates how Asian Americans, in different social and economic contexts, negotiate ties to their families and ethnic communities, construct ethnic and racial identities, and gain access to good schooling and institutional support; offers specific recommendations on how to involve first-generation immigrant parents and ethnic community members in schools to foster academic success; and looks at implications for developing educational policies that more fully address the needs of second-generation children."--BOOK JACKET.
