In our own community, we have seen Asian and Asian-American educators and students targeted in hate-filled “Zoom-bombing” incidents in high school classes.

We must be absolutely clear and unwavering in our support for Asian and Asian-American students, educators, and families who have been targets or are at risk of being targets of this hate.

Many Asian-American students have had to contend with long-standing explicit and implicit bias and discrimination that the current, alarming rise in anti-Asian American sentiment has exacerbated.

The “model minority” stereotype, an assumption that all Asian-American students do exceptionally well academically, can lead many of us to assume that Asian-American students are thriving.

Too often, this means that Asian-American students face risks to their emotional and mental health that we as a school system fail to identify.
