I teach during the evenings at a local College. Almost without exception the best students are from China, India, Singapore and Korea. We also did an analysis of the best students in the High School I work at during the day, and 75% of them are from Asia.

I am convinced that the Asian Students are going to save America from it self when they grow up and get into the workplace.

But in the mean time Asia may kill America. They are growing so fast and work so hard! So many of the American Born Students are lazy and not so bright.

I do not agree at all that American students are lazy, but your assessment of the pro-education values of our legal Asian immigrants and concomitant successes are correct, I believe.

I never heard that word before. I had to look it up. That was pretty slick. Yes Asian chics, I meant Asians have brought a lot to our country. They're awesome peoples. Whoa I didn't even realize I was over here in the immigration forum either. I never post here.

We need to break this down a tad further:

Both S Korea and Singapore are at replacement level population growth so the potential supply of immigrants may be getting low.

As for China and India: considering that each nation has ca. 1 billion people; the odds are quite high that they would have large numbers of potentially good students.

Another thing to consider: many of our best 'White' people are fleeing the cold weather climates for the Sunbelt--------Virginia does not qualify. And of course: breeders we ain't anymore.

Not me, I'm leaving the "Sunbelt" (assuming that Texas qualifies) because there aren't enough of my people around here.

Personally, I'd rather live in a part of the country where some aspect of Euro-American culture still dominates, and that is increasingly becoming very difficult to find here in the American Southwest.

What kind of college and what type of course? What are your specific observations concerning students, how do you know who is foreign born?

Things are still not bad in Arizona on Phx's latitude up north. Tucson; OTOH, is a different story-----and, I am not referring to just illegals and/or 'Hispanics' either.

Don't blame the students, blame their parents for not promoting the values of education, hard work and the values of integrity and more importantly discipline!

Students shouldn't get absolute immunity against responsibility for their own self-improvement. Your excuse on their behalf could spread to the parents. Don't blame the parents, because most of them don't develop their parenting skills in a vacuum. They gain the skills from what they observe. There's a cause for every negative consequence and effect out there. If blame requires the absence of negative influence upon your actions, then everyone's blameless.

Also, blaming one party doesn't prevent you from blaming another. Blame both the students and the parents. At some point, people need to just take responsibility for their own circumstances and actions.

Bunch of cherry picking BS. In recent news, blacks in Queens have a higher average income than whites in Queens. How is this. The black carribean population living there. Now considering the black carribean population is smaller than the African american one, points to the fact that they are doing well enough to raise the average income of all blacks in Queens to the point of being higher than whites. But let's be fair. Many of these blacks immigrants where of the educated/upwardly mobile class back in their homelands. The same applies to Asian immigrants. Obviously you can't paint Asians in general just by the more ambitious ones who happen to be immigrating here to what many of them call "the mouth of gold" or "America, a big (explative) waiting to get fcked". Then you have Mexicans and Central Americans, the poorest of them just walking across a vast land border. Do any of you have any idea of how low the Japanese look upon their Korean and Chinese immigrants. They accuse them of causing more crime (cough, cough), sound familiar? We don't need any immigrants, we will be fine. It's when a majority of us start saying we're screwed unless we replace ourselves with people from other countries. That's when you worry, wtf....
