Beyond Acronyms: Honoring the Complex Experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander Communities in K-12 Education

Center for American Progress

Virtual

The Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are extremely diverse, containing over 50 ethnic groups with different histories, cultures, and experiences in America. As they interact with the K-12 education system as educators, students, families, and community members, their varied backgrounds create distinct educational needs. As highlighted by a recent CAP report, school leaders and other policymakers looking to support the Asian American and Pacific Islanders need to create targeted policies that honor the diversity between and within these two communities.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a virtual event that highlights the complexity of Asian American and Pacific Islander experiences in K-12 education. Panelists will discuss the importance of incorporating Asian American and Pacific Islander stories in school curricula and the ways that many people in both these communities hold multiple marginalized identities that impact what they need to thrive in K-12 schools.
