At Cupertino's top schools, administrators, parents and students say white students end up in the stereotyped role often applied to other minority groups: the underachievers.
On the second floor, in advanced-placement chemistry, only a couple of the 32 students are white and the rest are Asian. Some white parents, and even some students, say they suspect teachers don't take white kids as seriously as Asians.

"Many of my Asian friends were convinced that if you were Asian, you had to confirm you were smart. If you were white, you had to prove it," says Arar Han, a Monta Vista graduate who recently co-edited "Asian American X," a book of coming-of-age essays by young Asian-Americans.

Ms. Gatley, the Monta Vista PTA president, is more blunt: "White kids are thought of as the dumb kids," she says.


KARMA!

Some whites fear that by avoiding schools with large Asian populations parents are short-changing their own children, giving them the idea that they can't compete with Asian kids. "My parents never let me think that because I'm Caucasian, I'm not going to succeed," says Jessie Hogin, a white Monta Vista graduate.


WTF!??!?! Did I just step into the twilight zone?



bwhahahaha I love it.... White folk running back to the poor performing schools that they ran from in the first place just so their child can get into College. Imagine these white folk thinking white teachers are not taking their white children serious, haha, a Black Child must be the invisible child in such a place. There was a great piece in the Wall Journal Street last week about "Who got in College this year". I will post it below as it is relevant to the discussion.
