As pandemic regulations continue to loosen and schools begin reopening, schools must ensure the well-being and safety of their Asian American and Pacific Islander-identified students.
In comparison to other students, AAPI students are returning to school at a lower rate.
According to a U.S. Education Department survey, seven out of every 10 AAPI students in K-12 education are still learning online. This has been partly attributed to the increase in hate crimes against the AAPI community since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stop AAPI Hate is a national coalition addressing anti-Asian racism across the United States, originally founded by the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and San Francisco State University’s Asian American Studies Department.
