While many people overlook the needs of AAPI students and mistakenly assume that all AAPI students are financially well-off and high-achieving academically, the truth is that many AAPI groups experience some of the lowest high school graduation and college degree attainment rates in America. Additionally, nearly half of AAPIs enrolled in higher education are attending community colleges.
