Your jittery Young Republicans would win - I choose to not add to an already out of control human population. But would the lovely little tykes have any time to do something other than study for tests, or would the doors to the study chamber be sealed from the outside?

Are you a misanthrope? Cause its become apparent you have a hatred of humanity? You also seem to automatically equate that hard work in school means your nerdy. Do you hate hard work? Is that what liberalism is nowadays?

Hmm...getting a little nervy? Or is that what fascism is nowadays? Hard work is great, but funnelling it all into one discipline at the expense of all others makes for a neurotic little lad. Like those little trenchcoat mafia brats that always seem to find guns when they realize they've been deprived of a personality throughout their childhood. Funny how a balanced approach has given way to extremism in such a short time. Oh, and it's "you're."

Problems arise...

Generally, the more educated a child's parents are (which is quite often correlated with socioeconomic status), the better their kids do in school. This pretty much holds true among all nationalities and ethnic groups. The South Bay Area, for its part, is a very expensive place to live, in no small part because of the concentration of high-tech wealth and jobs here, so it tends to draw affluent, educated individuals from all over the globe.

As far as the nationality/immigration issue goes..the "Asian" (really a crass generalization, as so many of these Asians are affluent, educated immigrants drawn disproportionately from certain countries) immigrant adults to America are twice as likely to have a Bachelor's degree as non-Asian immigrants (61 percent as opposed to 30 percent). A lot of this has to do with the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which lead to the aggressive recruiting of the 'best and the "brightest" Asian immigrants to America.

In contrast, the situation south of the border (Mexico mainly...) with the Drug War and its pervasive effects on Mexico's society has led many people there to head north out of desperation.

The difference in circumstances, education, and economics between different immigrant groups leads to different outcomes, more than anything else.
