"Left in the Margins: Asian American Students & the No Child Left Behind Act" examines the experience of Asian American English language learners in this era of high-stakes testing and school accountability. Despite the stereotype of Asian Americans as model students who always excel in school, many are in fact struggling and even dropping out of school because they do not have access to appropriate support services. This article, published by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, includes up-to-date data on Asian ethnic populations in the U.S., as well as detailed recommendations for improving schooling for Asian American English language learners.
