Achieving educational equity in the face of our nation’s increasingly diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) student population is the critical civil rights issue of our time.  The lack of data disaggregation amongst the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) population masks significant educational needs of lesser represented Asian American subgroups.

The bedrock of this effort – iCount—is data disaggregation: ensuring that we count every single student, and identify the diversity of the multi-faceted AAPI student population.

Join a dynamic group of data specialists, education policy experts, foundation partners and high-level federal officials at this working symposium to identify the barriers, challenges, and obstacles to achieving educational equity, and strategize around best practices, systems and solutions.

Every student counts. Let us ensure that every student is counted.

To guarantee a space, please accept or decline this invitation no later than COB Wednesday, May 8.

Presented by the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
