What could be different on students’ syllabi this year:

Asian American History

All Illinois public elementary and high schools should be including an Asian American history unit under a first-of-its-kind law in effect this school year. 

Students could learn about Filipino farm workers’ labor contributions in California, the fatal racist assault of Detroit draftsman Vincent Chin, and more from across the Asian American diaspora, Grace Pai of Asian Americans Advancing Justice Chicago told City Cast Chicago last year.
