Asian American Heritage Month Celebration: Strategy for Leon County Public Schools

Rationale: Why do we celebrate Asian American Awareness in schools?

    • Our schools, like our society are becoming more diverse
    • Teaching basic concepts removes misinformation and prejudice
    • Understanding other cultures at a younger age instills respect for other groups
    • Informing individuals without condemning others educates everyone

Objectives

    • Incorporate basic information about Asian American Heritage into county-wide curriculum
    • Invite students to explore the similarities and embrace differences between cultures.
    • Celebrate Asian Awareness Month
    • Create scholarships that are open to all students
    • Conduct an essay competition about Asian American Heritage and Culture
    • Invite prominent Asian Americans to speak at school functions
