Pacific Islander America: education issues in Washington State

This week Washington DC (where the PIA project is based) is all abuzz with preparations for the second inauguration of President Obama.  Several of us from the PIA project will watch the swearing in, but for this week's post I want to talk about the other Washington -- Washington State.

We've done a number of posts over the years about the longstanding and fast-growing Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander community in America's Pacific Northwest. If you're looking for more information about the Pacific Islander education issues in Washington State, I'd recommend a close read of this report: Growing Presence, Emerging Voices: Pacific Islanders and Academic Achievement in Washington State

It was authored by two University of Washington-Seattle professors and their research team, in response to a request from the Washington State Legislature.
