  •  I've read statistics on different SEAsian (1+ / 0-)

    communities giving percent on public assistance etc.

    There were large differences. The Vietnamese scored much higher, Hmong and Cambodians fairly low. Culturally Vietnamese are Chinese, I know I'll get blasted for saying it, but it is what it is. Prior to the war most of Vietnam had schools even in small villages

    Hmong have a tradition of no written language etc. No schools. Cambodians often came without intact families, and education in the countryside was mostly monks studying Pali text at the temple.

    I think too how disrupted families are when they come matters.

    Thais often seem to be advanced degree students that stay on.

    Generalizationa all on my part.
