Going Under The Educational Radar: Cambodians, Laotions, And Hmong

Monday, December 06, 2010

Apparently if you're one of the above, you're getting the short end of the stick when it comes to education which means that you, unlike your fist pumping Korean counterparts (you know I love you my K-plushies but you know you're out there) always seem to go under the radar when it comes to this education thing (and living wage thing too).

In California, which has the country's largest and most diverse Asian population, 45 percent of Hmong haven't graduated high school, the highest proportion among all 40-plus subgroups, UC researchers say. Furthermore, 40 percent of Cambodians and Laotians haven't finished high school, which is twice the statewide rate regardless of race. And about 20 percent of Pacific Islanders drop out of high school statewide.
I think you should revolt against your people - and by people, I mean fist pumping Koreans.
