A volume in the Chinese American Educational Research and Development Association Book Series Series Editor Jinfa Cai, University of Delaware This is the first in the book series on educational research sponsored by Chinese American Educational Research and Development Association (CAERDA, www.caerda.org). Since its inception in 1992, CAERDA has dedicated itself to the improvement of educational research and development of Chinese in North America and around the globe. In 2006, CAERDA launched its landmark project to start a book series on critical issues and contemporary trends in the educational landscape of Chinese and Chinese Americans. The purpose of this book series is to promote excellence and equity for all, with research and educational implications from studies on Chinese and Chinese American education or studies by Chinese and Chinese American scholars and practitioners. The CAERDA book series has three unique features. First, each book has a focused theme with multidisciplinary perspectives structured in an integrated framework. This interdisciplinary approach encourages participation and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. Second, each book addresses educational issues not only within its focus on Chinese and Chinese Americans but also in relation to a larger context or environment where Chinese and Chinese Americans are only a part of it. As such, the book series provides both insider's and outsider's perspectives on the educational challenges we face today and in the years to come.
