Research: Why So Few Asian American Teachers? and Tips for Readers of Research.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v83 n1 p14,16 Sep 2001
Reviews research by June Gordon, appearing in the June issue of "Teachers College Record," that explored why Asian Americans were underrepresented in the teaching profession. Major reasons that Asian Americans avoided the teaching profession were parent pressure, lack of self-confidence, fear of working in an unfamiliar environment, and disapproval of "race-matched" teaching.
