Download Audio

A new report commissioned by members of the Massachusetts Asian American Educators Association finds that Asian American students in Boston Public High Schools are more likely to report feeling an absence of belonging, and a lack of interest from teachers as compared to Black, Latino or white students.

Go Sasaki is a co-author of the report “Truth from Youth: The Asian American Experience in BPS High Schools” and a former BPS educator. He joins The Common for a deeper look at the report's findings, and the myths and tropes that impact many Asian American students.
