ABSTRACT
The article reports on the success of Asian Americans in the U.S. It cites that Asian Americans appear to be a successful minority in which they attain the highest rate of college graduates compared to whites. It is noted that they are well represented in the computer, scientific, and medical services. It is believed that such success is due to one fact that parents put pressure on their children to achieve academic success because of their faith in the power of hard work to meet any challenge.
