We Are Not a Stereotype: Imagining Asian Education

Tackling race in education too often centers a Black-white binary. The US Asian population rose to 11.9 million by 2000 and then nearly doubled to 22.4 million by 2019 – an 88% increase. However, only 2-3% of public school teachers and 1% of school leaders represent the identities of these students. This workshop aims to shed light on the experiences of Asian American students and educators, and how to support and sustain Asian Americans through curriculum and pedagogy.
