Some Asian students return to South Philly High

About a week after Asian students protest violence at South Philly High, some students are starting to return to school. They have stated that they are targets of anti-Asian discrimination and violence. Yesterday, school district officials, Asian community representatives and boycotting Asian students met to discuss how to improve the current situation. Cultural tensions at the school have gone unaddressed by the school officials (See here, here, and here.) The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) also intends to file a complaint for civil rights violations with the U.S. Department of Justice against the Philadelphia School District for failing to address the rampant violence against Asian immigrant students at South Philadelphia High School (see here.)
