A report that examines the Asian-American population in San Diego County shatters perceptions that all members of the ethnic group are successful in school and society.
Sakaguchi was the primary researcher on the San Diego report released Thursday, which can be found here.
Sakaguchi and Iwanaga-Penrose said the report helps contract the “model minority” myth many people have of Asian Americans.

The Filipino population is the largest Asian population in the county and the third largest in the nation.
