Becoming a Model Minority: Schooling Experiences of Ethnic Koreans in China looks at the manner in which ethnic Korean students construct self-perception out of the model minority stereotype in their school and lives in Northeast China. It also examines how this self-perception impacts the strength of the model minority stereotype in their attitudes toward school and strategies for success. Fang Gao shows how this stereotype tends to obscure significant barriers to scholastic success suffered by Korean students, as well as how it silences the disadvantages faced by Korean schooling in China's reform period and neglects the importance of multiculturalism and racial equality under the context of a harmonious society.

This book develops a new approach towards the formation of the ethnic boundary as a complex interrelation between cognitive operations and ethnic/national boundaries formation process. Korean diaspora in China, Russia, the United States, and Japan illustrate how this process correlates with the nationalism of the host societies, highlighting the differences and similarities. It covers a wide range of topics, from politics and economics to arts, mass culture and psychology, from comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives, at the same time avoiding eclectic combinations of different spheres of knowledge. This book challenges interactionist and post-modernist paradigms that dominate today’s social science and facilitates dialogue between social and natural scientists, especially cognitive studies to promote more complex and still systematic approach towards society. It combines in-depth research, comparative perspectives and theoretical thoroughness. It appeals to anyone interested in history, culture, economic and other aspects of Korean migration; the general theory and practice of migration; East Asian studies, Asian American studies, Russian studies and studies on social complexity and cognition.

In order for the United States to maintain the global leadership and competitiveness in science and technology that are critical to achieving national goals, we must invest in research, encourage innovation, and grow a strong and talented science and technology workforce. Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation explores the role of diversity in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce and its value in keeping America innovative and competitive. According to the book, the U.S. labor market is projected to grow faster in science and engineering than in any other sector in the coming years, making minority participation in STEM education at all levels a national priority. Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation analyzes the rate of change and the challenges the nation currently faces in developing a strong and diverse workforce. Although minorities are the fastest growing segment of the population, they are underrepresented in the fields of science and engineering. Historically, there has been a strong connection between increasing educational attainment in the United States and the growth in and global leadership of the economy. Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation suggests that the federal government, industry, and post-secondary institutions work collaboratively with K-12 schools and school systems to increase minority access to and demand for post-secondary STEM education and technical training. The book also identifies best practices and offers a comprehensive road map for increasing involvement of underrepresented minorities and improving the quality of their education. It offers recommendations that focus on academic and social support, institutional roles, teacher preparation, affordability and program development.

In an era of ever increasing anti-immigrant sentiment and in the face of the worst economic recession since the great depression, this book presents a timely, compassionate and often moving glimpse into the lives of second generation children of immigrants in urban schools. The editors and distinguished immigration scholars/ researchers and educators in this book provide compelling research and data that focuses on the effects of ethnic stereotyping on the educational outcomes of youth whose roots span the globe from Puerto Rico to Japan and from Mexico to India, as they struggle to construct identities and make a place for themselves in these United States. These young people, mostly born in America and attending American schools, must never the less carry the burden of the stereotypes imposed upon their parents and ethnic groups. How they manage to navigate an often biased and unjust system, circumvent roadblocks and recreate themselves as bicultural or hybrid American citizens, makes for a story of courage, resiliency and transformation that restores hope in the fulfillment of the American dream and lends credence to the Emma Lazarus quote inscribed on the "mother of exiles" statue that graces the New York skyline. "Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door " Additionally the authors present sane and knowledgeable solutions for supporting the education and emotional/psychological/social growth of these young people in our schools, our classrooms and our lives.
