This book set in motion much-needed interest in the model minority myth as a topic vital to understanding the educational achievement of Asian American youth. In this update to her groundbreaking work, Stacey Lee explores the continuing significance of the model minority stereotype in the wake of legislation that has dramatically altered the landscape of education. In an expanded introduction and conclusion, Lee looks at recent research to uncover the ways in which the larger structures of race and class play out in the lives of Asian American high school students. The text presents the experiences of these students in their own words, providing a uniquely authentic inside perspective on identity and interethnic relations in an American community. This second edition is essential reading for anyone interested in Asian American youth and their experience in U.S. schools
