Article
The framework of cultural advantage calls researchers and leaders to reexamine the structures, paradigms, and practices of effective education. We argue that the moral imperative in this challenge is to critically scrutinize and counter the way education systems perpetuate systematic inequities in opportunities and outcomes afforded to certain grou...
Chapter
In this chapter, we explore the history and cultural context of an important but little studied population in higher education, Native Hawaiians. On an applied level, the study of Native Hawaiian access and success in higher education may help to better document their condition and suggest useful ways for closing the durable gaps in attainment. On...
Article
The long-standing education achievement gaps of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) students in our nation represent a significant concern, one that diverse stakeholders are committed to resolving. Although national data sets fail to address NHPI populations, thereby limiting the ability to drive effective policy and programs, local-level r...
Article
Knowledge is power in social change efforts, and data and diverse approaches are needed to fuel it. Recommendations from this section's experts in the field are united in calling for using Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidelines consistently; disaggregating data collection and reporting on socioeconomic, educational, cultural, youth, and h...

We examined the interaction between ethnicity and gender in predicting the likelihood of having ever smoked (vs. having never smoked) and being a current smoker (vs. being a former smoker) and in predicting years spent as a regular smoker. These relationships were examined while controlling for the possible confounding effects of sociodemographics,...
Article
Full-text available
Given the very large proportion of Hawaiians who are multiracial, our research examines Native Hawaiian identification in mixed-race Hawai-ian families. We use the 1990 US Census, which affords a unique look at racial identification because multiracial people were required to choose one race over another. The results show support for our argument t...
Article
This article presents the results of new data collection in Mexico about the relationship between child well-being and social networks. Two research questions guide the analysis. First, under what conditions do networks generate greater (lesser) support? Second, what kinds of networks are associated with healthier children? We explore the health st...
Article
Missing in recent studies on migration and health is an examination of how the gendered process of migration affects the health of children in Mexican households. This omission is surprising given that substantial scholarship has revealed that parents selectively discriminate against girls in households worldwide. Using new binational data on the h...
Article
Many immigrant households receive government transfers, and immigrant households also send substantial amounts of remittances abroad. This study tests the hypothesis that public transfers to U.S. immigrant households "crowd in" remittances. Economic theory is inconclusive about how public transfers influence remittances. We find no evidence that me...
Article
The numerically large and growing Indochinese refugee population has been little studied with respect to infant health. It is a population that is young, is experiencing high fertility, late onset of prenatal care, and is characterized by low socioeconomic status. Thus, it presents a high risk profile with respect to infant mortality. Using linked...
Article
The migration literature agrees on several key factors that motivate individual decisions to move: human capital investments, socioeconomic status, familial considerations, social networks, and local opportunities in places of origin relative to opportunities abroad. Yet further analysis of the social forces underlying these relationships reveals i...
Article
We apply multilevel methods to data from Mexico to examine how village migration patterns affect infant survival outcomes in origins. We argue that migration is a cumulative process with varying health effects at different stages of its progression, and test several related hypotheses. Findings suggest higher rates of infant mortality in communitie...

Article
The desire to improve educational delivery and outcomes has prompted significant advancements in culture-based education as a foundation for community-driven, place-based, relevant educational approaches that more effectively engage children and their families in lifelong learning and leadership. This article shares the early process and tools of a...
