College achievement among Asians, Pacific Islanders varies widely
The Campaign for College Opportunity in partnership with Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles today released “The State of Higher Education in California: Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander,” report which examines how the state’s 6.3 million Asian Americans and 347,501 Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, representing one in seven Californians, are faring in higher education.
The Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community is the fastest growing racial/ethnic group in California and when AANHPI go to college in California, they overwhelmingly attend the state’s public colleges and universities. Eighty-seven percent of Asian Americans and 73% of NHPI start their college career at a public institution. Nearly half of all Asian Americans (47%) and 55% of NHPI start at a California community college.
