When Social Class Meets Ethnicity: College-Going Experiences of Chinese and Korean Immigrant Students
Kim, Eunyoung
Review of Higher Education, v37 n3 p321-348 Spr 2014
Successful educational outcomes among Asian American college students often obscure the challenges and nuanced educational experiences of Asian immigrant ethnic groups. Therefore, the aim of this study was to better understand the college-going experiences of Chinese and Korean immigrant students by examining the relationship between these students' college decisions and their parents' expectations and involvement. Results indicate that parental expectations and involvement are deeply related to college enrollment decisions and extend influence well into the academic careers of these students after entry into college. The study reveals both differences and commonalities in parental involvement across ethnicity and social class.
