Access and Aspirations: Careers in Teaching As Seen by Canadian University Students of Chinese and Punjabi-Sikh Ancestry.
Beynon, June; Toohey, Kelleen
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v41 n4 p435-61 Dec 1995
Students of Chinese and Punjabi-Sikh ancestry are underrepresented in teacher education programs in British Columbia. Interviews with 34 college students from these ethnic groups found that career choice was influenced most strongly by parental expectations, and was also affected by cultural sex role attitudes, English language proficiency, and perceptions of ethnic bias in schools. Contains 49 references. (SV)
