Chinese American Parental Involvement

Interesting research article from Harvard I just came across. I am not sure I agree with all of the information gathered on the Chinese parent part. What I have noticed is Chinese Parents I have been around often have careers picked out for their children at a young age, as well as what college they are going to, and extreme pressure on their children to succeed and a willingness to sacrifice accordingly. Which explains the amazing the amount of after school prep. programs their are in Rowland Heights. Want to take Algebra II in the summer before you take it for a grade that counts so it's just review during the school year, no problem. Only $1700 or so from one of these education places... Makes it interesting when your child did not take it during the summer, or have parents who are spending major time at night tutoring, and/or have private math tutoring after school. An interesting book that sounds closer to my experience is written by a journalist, who taught a year at a High School in Cerritos. High achieving, sleep deprived with extreme parental pressure is the student norm he writes about.
