Deconstructing The Model Minority Myth And How It Contributes To The Invisible Minority Reality In Higher Education Research, Samuel Museus, Peter Kiang 2011 University of Massachusetts Boston

Deconstructing The Model Minority Myth And How It Contributes To The Invisible Minority Reality In Higher Education Research, Samuel Museus, Peter Kiang

Peter Kiang

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are seldom the subjects of higher education research. This omission is evident in the finding that, over the past decade, approximately only 1% of articles published in five of the most widely read peer-reviewed academic journals in the field of higher education have given specific attention to Asian American or Pacific Islander college students. It has been argued that the exclusion of AAPIs from scholarly inquiry in postsecondary education is in part due to the pervasive influence of the model minority myth on contemporary thought about the AAPI population. The model minority stereotype is ...

English Learners In Boston Public Schools: Enrollment And Educational Outcomes Of Native Speakers Of Vietnamese, Mandira Kala, Peter Kiang, Nicole Lavan, Faye Karp

Peter Kiang

In November 2002, the voters of Massachusetts approved Referendum Question 2. This referendum spelled an end to Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) as the primary program available for children requiring language support in Massachusetts. In its place came a radically different policy called Sheltered English Immersion (SEI). Unlike TBE, which relies on the English learners’ own language to facilitate the learning of academic subjects as they master English, SEI programs rely on the use of simple English in the classroom to impart academic content; teachers use students’ native language only to assist them in completing tasks or to answer a question ...

This study focuses on the academic experience of English Learners (ELs) in Boston’s public schools in the year before and in the three years following the implementation of Referendum Question 2. In 2002, this referendum spelled an end to Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) as the primary program available for children requiring language support in Massachusetts public schools, replacing it with Sheltered English Immersion (SEI). Specifically, this report focuses on the enrollment and academic outcomes of the five largest groups of native speakers of languages other than English in the Boston Public Schools: speakers of Spanish, Chinese dialects, Vietnamese, Haitian ...


We Could Shape It: Organizing For Asian Pacific American Student Empowerment, Peter Nien-chu Kiang 2011 University of Massachusetts Boston

We Could Shape It: Organizing For Asian Pacific American Student Empowerment, Peter Nien-Chu Kiang

Peter Kiang

With the doubling of the school-age population of Asian Pacific Americans during the 1990s, the unmet needs of Asian Pacific Americans are escalating dramatically in schools throughout the country. In most settings, teachers, counselors, and administrators do not share the ethnic, linguistic, and racial backgrounds of their Asian Pacific American students. Constrained by limited resources, an increasingly hostile, anti-immigrant climate, and their own stereotypical assumptions, educators have been unable to respond effectively to the full range of academic, social, and personal challenges that face growing numbers of Asian Pacific American students.

Leaving School In Australia : Early Career And Labour Market Outcomes., Julie Mcmillan, Sheldon Rothman

Dr Julie McMillan

This briefing uses key findings from two LSAY research reports to describe post-school education, training and labour market activities of young people during the period from 1996-2000. It also identifies some of the factors that affect young people's chances of obtaining full-time employment or not becoming unemployed. The results suggest that the early career and labour market outcomes of young people are largely positive. Making a good start upon leaving school, either by engaging in full-time work, an apprenticeship or university study increases the likelihood of success in subsequent years. [Author abstract, ed]
