It’s useful to look at the findings of a recent United States Government Accountability Office report and note how various groups of people of Asian heritage are faring in getting college and university degrees. Inside Higher Ed notes that it’s important for educators not to assume that all Asian-American students are doing better in school than everyone else—and don’t need any help. The report shows that 13 percent of Cambodian, Laotian, and Hmong adults attain at least a 4-year degree while 68 percent of Asian Indian adults do so.
