Asian-American Education: Historical Background and Current Realities

By Meyer Weinberg | Go to book overview

among first-time freshmen rose from 16.3% in 1980 to 38.4% in 1994 at the University of California (see Table 14.2). During the same years, they made up only 6.2 and 15.2% of all public high-school graduates in the state.

As in American higher education as a whole, attendance in highly selective institutions is strongly correlated with income/social class, whatever the ethnic group. But Asian-American attendance exceeds even the record of White, upper-middle class groups. At the same time, as we have seen, many educational problems of Asian-Americans remain unattended.
