Amy Chua, the author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, once argued that Chinese mothers were better than all other mothers. She cited statistics with which were all familiar: Chinese-Americans tend to dominate their peers in school and in tests, Chinese-Americans enroll in and graduate from the best US colleges at alarmingly high rates, and Chinese-Americans have the highest average income among all ethnic groups in the United States.Though Chua later backed away from her blanket assertion that Chinese mothers were superior-even disavowing her article, “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior”, which was published in The Wall Street Journal-she has returned (with her husband Jed Rubenfeld) to the same basic thesis in The Triple Package.She now argues that eight “cultural” groups in the US are more successful than others. Not surprisingly, Chinese-Americans are among the pack. The success of groups like Chinese-Americans, Chua says, is due to three distinct “cultural” characteristics: a superiority complex, insecurity and impulse control. Since average Americans dont possess this “triple package”, they are destined to be less successful.While theres no question that Chinese children excel at early academics and tests because of certain cultural factors prevalent in Chinese families, Chua doesnt mention the sobering, second half of the story. I believe that her theory is unable to explain why no Chinese educated solely in China has ever won a Nobel Prize for any of the science subjects or the fabled mathematics Fields Medal.Americans have won the highest number of both prizes. Remarkably, the only people of Chinese descent to have ever won the Nobel in science subjects-Tsung-Dao Lee, Frank Chen Ning Yang, Samuel Chao Chung Ting, Yuan Tseh Lee, Steven Chu, Daniel Chee Tsui and Roger Yonchien Tsien-did so after completing their education in the US.This illustrates the critical problem with Chuas “triple package”. The so-called success of Chinese-Americans cannot (and should not) be attributed solely to cultural characteristics passed down through Chinese families. Theres more to it than that. In The Hybrid Tiger, I have argued that children acquire education from three disparate sources: (1) family education, (2) school education and (3) social education. In the course of becoming “educated”, children are bombarded with different values, demands and instructions from these three sources of education. Children must develop an intake procedure through which they sift, meld, discard and incorporate these varied and often competing values to form a cohesive whole “self”. This fourth piece I call “self education”. For my “tripod theory” of education to stand upright, the three legs (family, school and social education) must balance and support the head (self-education) to form a whole, independent and free-standing structure.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesTiger Mother author returns with The Triple PackageWolf Fathers and Tiger MothersEducation: Tiger mother, rebel university, green scarf, Jeanswest buildingThe real hymn of the tiger motherMost Viewed Todays Top NewsRising to the security challengesRussia faces tough road to successJoint efforts to meet challengesIs Vietnam safe?Abes dangerous moveForum TrendsForum trends: Cultural taboos in ChinaForum trends: Some “bad” habits Ive picked up in ChinaForum trends: Chinas number superstitionsHow to make friends with foreignersForum trends: You know you are in China when…(Part II)Chinas leftover women-intelligent and charmingForum trends: Why did you choose to live in China?ColumnistsHow good a govt India has gotNew type of urbanization is in the detailsFeatured ContributorsAsias increasing dependence on ChinaEat less, treat moreStar BloggersGetting old in ChinaWhen you look into the mirror today, imagine what you would say ten years from now about todays you.
