Achievement Differences between Chinese and Non-Chinese Asians in America:
Linking Parental Involvement with Student Academic Achievement by Race-
ethnicity
Introduction
In the past decades, research has revealed the exceptional academic
achievement of students from Asian origins, who academically outperform any other
racial-ethnic group although they have been subjected to similar prejudice and
discriminatory practices encountered by other ethnic minority groups (Fejgin 1995;
Kao 1995; Sue and Okazaki 1990). Research linking parental involvement with
student academic achievement seeks to identify the parental practices among Asian,
White and other minority parents that decodes the “secrets of their success”. If Asian
students are academically successful because of certain parental practices in the home
environment, there may be lessons for policymakers that can benefit others
(Dornbusch 1989; Kao 1995; Sue and Okazaki 1990).
A number of recent studies which mostly employed NELS:88 data
haveindicated that statistically significant differences exist in the relationship between
parental involvement and student academic achievement according to the students’
race-ethnicity (i.e., Asian, Black, Hispanic, and White) (Desimone 1999; Ho &
Williams 1996). However, racial-ethnic groups are so broadly defined in NELS that it
would be inadequate to collapse all those different racial-ethnic groups (e.g., Asian,
Hispanic) into one category under a homogeneous label regardless of their various
