ISR study
indicates
gains by
refugees
By DAVID GOODWIN
They are refugees, they are am-
bitious, and they have overcome
language barriers, poverty, and
culture -shock to achieve academic
excellence. They are the children of
the "Boat People" and other refugees
who fled Indochina.
A recent University study of post-
1978 Indochinese refugees indicates
that cultural values and family-
centered achievement may be playing
an important role in their classroom
success.
THE STUDY, directed by Nathan
Caplan of the Institute for Social
Research (ISRI and John Whitmore
of the Center for South and Southeast
Asian Studies, examined the

"IN ONE WORD, I'm thrilled,"
Levy said yesterday, adding that she
will be making monthly visits to Ann
Arbor for "consultation and
familiarization."
Frye lauded Levy's experience, ac-
hievements, and reputation. "She

Affordable
housing
* issue sparks
controversy

By ERIC MATTSON
Daily news analysis
Nearly three months after the Affordable
Housing Task Force identified a "severe need" for
cheaper housing in Ann Arbor, the fight over what
to do about it drags on with no end in sight.
The Democrats and Republicans on the Ann Ar-
bor City Council take fundamentally different ap-
proaches to the issue, so radical policy changes
are virtually impossible. Any city action to make
housing more affordable will have to come
gradually, without coercion.
AS IT stands now, Republicans view

Democratic initiatives to make housing more ac-
cessible to low- and moderate-income residents
with skepticism, and some aren't convinced that
the city really needs to do more to encourage af-
fordable housing. They say that humbers put
together by the Affordable Housing Task Force
are misleading and do not show that there is a
serious lack of affordable housing in the city.
Councilmember Dick Deem (R-Second Ward)
argued that because data the task force used in its
April report included students living off-campus,
the conclusions the report draw are not well-
founded.

A minority opinion included in the report con-
curred: "The student factor has irredeemably
skewed the data, the assumptions, and the out-
comes projected. Students, who are almost by
definition low-income, would present an insatiable
drain on rent subsidies."
DEEM SAID that because students usually
receive money from their parents or student
loans, their incomes appear to be lower than they
really are.
But Councilmember Lowell Peterson (D-First
Ward), chairman of the task force, said "the bias
