Washington's Asian American Studies: Today and Tomorrow.
Kashima, Tetsuden
An overview of Asian American studies in the State of Washington is provided in this report. Statistics on the number of Asian students in Washington's schools are used to illustrate the need for Asian American courses at all educational levels. The results of three questionnaires which were distributed to obtain information about respondents' opinions/perceptions of Asian American studies at his or her institution and information about Asian American course offerings and Asian American or related programs are summarized. The responses described came from educators and students in elementary and secondary schools, community colleges, and institutions of higher education. Brief descriptions of multicultural and bilingual courses or programs offered at the various institutions surveyed are also included. It is emphasized that existing programs are too few in number and too limited in scope to meet the needs of the State's Asian American population. (EB)
