could education expectation be consider a major problems for asian americans?


  1. within the family yes, OH wait actually as i type this and think about it yes, but i need help on my actual facts

    SCHOOLS the whole.....precentage on race's advancing

    When i went to school (1996-2000)

    whites and asians hard more of a hard time trying to get into certain college depending on the race's admitting...meaning

    UC Berekley at the time it was a very good school to go to for engineering...

    mostly whites and asians went there from hard work

    now, from what i heard (forgot the name that sums it up) but if you were black or mexican you had a better chance getting in berekley and lower standards cuase the percentage of students of your race was lower... so they wanted to be fair...

    since asians and whites were dominating your chances were slim on getting in unless you were that 1% that was top out of the 99% that were nearly perfect

    so yes in a way, expectation for education is a major problem

    but again qoute me if im wrong =D

  2. I feel as though it might be, especially for younger high school kids who feel the pressure to enter high-end institutions. Often times within most families, the best school means the best future, and it becomes very difficult to compete with thousands of students every year to get into one university. It might become a problem if the student cannot handle the pressure.

    I'm not sure if I answered your question, LOL!!!

  3. Asian parents always have high expectation to their child. I don't think this is a problem. Expectation is also a motivation to push you to become a better person and have a better life.

  4. I don't think the expectation is a problem at all, I mean without goals and expectations there would be very little satisfaction in life. However in regards to the pressure that some parents put on their children by having them studying and taking part in extra curricular activities 18 hours a day while their friends are being kids, I would have to agree that this is unreasonable but it is not our choice every parent has the right to choose how they want to raise their child. As long as they dont physically hurt the kid I couldnt see anything wrong with a little motivation.
