Summary: From elementary through graduate school, the achievements of Asian-American students are nothing less than remarkable. Already their academic success has been reflected in economic and intellectual achievements in a number of fields. At the same time, the success of Asian-American students is related to the economic and educational status of their parents, most of whom are foreign born. Such achievements of migrants and their children are not new but have occurred before in the United States and in other countries over the ages. Never before, however, has there been so large a movement of highly educated, largely middle-class immigrants into the United States, and probably not into any other nation. No other group has moved so quickly upward in the United States with the possible exception of the Jews. Explanations are sought in family structure and in middleman and niche theories of migration.
