Review:

This book provides not only the impetus but also strategies for developing more effective and authentic educational experiences for Asian Pacific American youth. It describes the circumstances that have allowed us as a nation and specifically as educators to be blind to the special needs of these children. The message of this book challenges the model minority view of Asian students as a myth. It calls educators to recognize and respond to the silent struggle of Asian youth who endure discrimination and underrepresentation in special service programs. Patricia VanLeuvan, Penn State at Delaware County"
