Challenging the Minority Myth of Asian Americans And Korean American Students’ Academic Performance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Asian Americans are often portrayed in the media as the model minority that achieved economic and academic success in the United States without any government assistance, and only with great work ethnic and dedication to their education. It is argued that Asian culture which emphasizes hard-working and education are a significant factor in their success in the United States. This paper examines the model minority myth of Asian Americans- how the model minority is created and its effects on Asian American students; and an in-depth analysis on Korean American students’ academic performance. Korean American students’ are chosen as an example because while many researches examine only the academic success of Korean American students, there is a lack of scholarly attention in a marginalized Korean American student population that is struggling and failing in the American educational system.
