b /b b i The Asian American Educational Experience /i /b is the most comprehensive reader on Asian American education. Combining the best scholarship on the subject from across a range of fields--ethnic studies, education, psychology, sociology, urban studies, Asian American studies--the volume will fill an enormous gap in the literature at a time when the growth of Asian populations--in American society and in American schools--is outpacing that of all other racial and ethnic minorities. br br The contributions examine the most significant issues and concerns in the education of Asian Americans. Contributors, all leading experts in their fields, provide theoretical discussions, practical insights and recommendations, historical perspectives and an analytical context for the many issues crucial to the education of this diverse population--controversies in higher education over alleged admissions quotas, stereotypes of Asian American students as "whiz kids", Asian Americans as the "model minority",bilingual education, education of refugee and immigrant populations, educational quality and equity. Special emphasis is given to both the historic debates which have shaped the field, and the concerns and challenges facing educators of Asian American students at both the K-12 and university level. br br The volume is introduced by Don T. Nakanishi and concludes with the most comprehensive bibliography on Asian American educational research available. br br b /b b i Contributors: /i /b Don T. Nakanishi, Charles Wollenburg, John N.
