In Amy Chua's view, there is a simple formula for raising Tiger Kids: place an uncompromising value on education, then reinforce it with hard work, strict discipline, and practice, practice, and more practice. The Immigrant and Intergenerational Mobility in Metropolitan Los Angelessurvey data reveals distinctive patterns among Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mexicans in Los Angeles. First, Chinese immigrant parents are the most educated of the three groups, reflecting the high selectivity of Chinese immigration to LA. On the other end of the educational attainment spectrum are Mexican immigrant parents, the majority of whom have not graduated from high school; close to 60 percent of Mexican immigrant fathers and mothers have less than a high school education. Simply adopting a frame for academic success can not ensure a particular outcome; for frames to be effective, they need institutional support and resources.
