Not all the same.

Asian-American adults in California are more likely to have graduated from college than adults in other racial groups, but that educational success isn't found among all the Asian groups in the state. Vietnamese-, Laotian-, Cambodian- and Hmong-American adults are less likely to have college degrees than the average Californian adult, and only one-fifth of native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander adults in the state have degrees. The Asian Pacific American Legal Center study also found a wide variation between the genders, with Nepalese-, Bangladeshi-, Pakistani-, Korean- and Taiwanese-American men graduating from college at a rate that's 10 percentage points higher than their female counterparts.
