Jan 28 Partner Spotlight: SEAeD Coalition (Southeast Asian American Access in Education)

Washington, DC - The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) applauds the All Students Count Act, proposed legislation that calls for our education data system to catch up to the diverse realities of our students. This week, both Representative Mike Honda (D-CA-17) and Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) introduced House and Senate versions of the All Students Count Act (H.R. 717 and S. 389), which would require annual state report cards to use the same race categories as the decennial Census and provide additional cross-tabulations of student outcomes by gender, disability, and English language proficiency.
