How do we ensure that all Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students have the tools to succeed in school and life? Achieving educational equity for our state’s fastest growing and most diverse population is a critical civil rights issue. Join us for a first look at new education data on AAPI students in Washington and learn about hidden and invisible opportunity gaps facing our students. Engage with researchers, grassroots leaders, and policymakers about community-driven strategies and recommendations to close the opportunity gaps. The National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE), the Southeast Asian Education Coalition, Our Future Matters, and CAPAA are pleased to announce the release of a new report that examines the educational opportunity gaps for Asian and Pacific Islander (API) students in Washington State.
