schooling resources all affect the aspirations and academic achievement of Asian American youth. 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.Looks at implications for developing educational policies that more fully address the needs of second-generation children.
