The specialized high schools themselves, though a small percentage of the public schools, reflect the gross lack of diversity, inequity, and inclusion in the larger system. Therefore, CACF believes in eliminating the SHSAT or any single test as the sole measure for admission to the specialized high schools in favor of adopting a multiple measures policy. In addition to these reforms, we also offer several recommendations on how the City and the Department of Education can better promote diversity and inclusion in the school system and ensure all students have equitable access to a high quality education. This responsibility is critical as APAs continue to be left out of educational reform efforts and policy decisions, further perpetuating the harmful effects of the model minority myth. With this brief, we hope to highlight the important role the APA community plays in the broader fight for educational equity.

The progression of China's population pyramid , International Futures. The fertility rate in China continued its fall from 2. Some scholars claim that this decline is similar to that observed in other places that had no one-child restrictions, such as Thailand as well as Indian states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, a claim designed to support the argument that China's fertility might have fallen to such levels anyway without draconian fertility restrictions    . According to a study in the Journal of Economic Perspectives , "the one-child policy accelerated the already-occurring drop in fertility for a few years, but in the longer term, economic development played a more fundamental role in leading to and maintaining China's low fertility level. However, a more recent study found that China's fertility decline to very low levels by the mid s was far more impressive given its lower level of socio-economic development at that time;  even after taking rapid economic development into account, China's fertility restrictions likely averted over million births between and , with the portion caused by one-child restrictions possibly totaling million.
