Although no ethnic group is a monolith, when it comes to education Asian-Americans consistently outperform all others (“The Woke ‘Model Minority’ Myth,” The Wall Street Journal, Feb. 23). Their achievement calls into question the assertion that success is the result of white oppression.
If that were true, then Asian-American students should lag far behind their peers because of the blatant bigotry of laws such as the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and the internment of Japanese-Americans during WW II. Yet they overcame such prejudice by hard work and reverence for education.
Nevertheless, progressives refuse to acknowledge the facts, instead preferring to see everything in education as white oppression. Public schools that teach such things are why so many parents are enrolling their children in private and religious schools.
