Education for, by, and of Asian/Pacific Americans, II.
Morishima, James K.; Mizokawa, Donald T.
Research Review of Equal Education, v3 n4 Fall 1979
This report examines the community and psychosocial concerns of Asian/Pacific American parents, teachers, and students in public and postsecondary education. Limited access to education is attributed to (1) the lack of academic models; and (2) language differences and communications barriers that result in educational discrimination. Bilingual education and English as a Second Language programs for Asian/Pacific Americans are analyzed, and the Asian American community's perceptions of these programs are considered. A psychosocial profile of Asian/Pacific Americans is developed which explores assertiveness, speech anxiety, and frustration aggression in Asian American behavior. Cultural values held by Asian Americans are considered in relation to their educational and occupational goals. Postsecondary Asian/Pacific studies programs are also discussed. The authors conclude that underlying the issue of equal education for Asian and Pacific Americans is the more general issue of human rights. (APM)
