NYC schools Chancellor Richard Carranza is resuming implicit-bias training remotely for all Department of Education employees, saying for the first time the controversial sessions are needed because of bias against Asian-Americans.

The anti-bias workshops are controversial.

“The city has seen an increase in bias and bigotry directed at Asian and Asian-American New Yorkers.
