National Study Led by Robert Teranishi Reveals Underserved AAPI Student Populations
March 11, 2014
UCLA Professor of Education Robert Teranishi recently released a report that examines how current methods of collecting and reporting data on the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) student populations conceal significant disparities in educational experiences and outcomes. The report, which is titled, “iCount: A Data Quality Movement for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Higher Education,” was a product of a partnership with the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The report was released last summer at a national symposium hosted by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islanders in Education, a project for which Professor Teranishi is Principal Investigator.
