A limited number of studies have examined Asian American children's literature over the last half century. While the selection and availability of this literature has increased substantially in the last two decades, many of these texts continue to perpetuate stereotypes (Morgan, 2012), such as the overachieving model minority (Loh-Hagen, 2014) and…

Kulkarni, Saili S. – Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, 2017

Park, Julie J. – National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education, 2012
A key argument for affirmative action is that college students benefit from engagement in a racially diverse student body.

Engagement with…
