The Implications of Intersectionality on Southeast Asian Female Students' Educational Outcomes in the United States: A Critical Quantitative Intersectionality Analysis
Jang, Sung Tae
American Educational Research Journal, v55 n6 p1268-1306 Dec 2018
Based on the framework of critical quantitative intersectionality, the purpose of this study is to examine the multifaceted impacts of Southeast Asian female students' race or ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status on math achievement score and intention to enter higher education. This study found that math achievement scores of Southeast Asian students were significantly higher than those of other race or ethnicity groups. However, Southeast Asian female students' intention to pursue higher education was significantly lower than that of Southeast Asian males as well as being the lowest among all female students. The school organizational characteristics used in this study did not mediate or differentiate the intersectionalities related to Southeast Asian female students. The patterns held regardless of schooling contexts.
