Clara C and David Choi will be participating in a White House Ustream Panel on education today (Feb. 17th) at 4 p.m. PST.
The event, which is put on by the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, is part of a national campaign to recruit more diverse/qualified teachers – only one percent of teachers in the country are Asian American or Pacific Islander.
Sefa Aina, the commissioner of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and Taryn Benarroch, project director of the U.S. Dept. of Education TEACH Campaign will also be participating.
If you can’t make it to the panel, which will take place at Granada Hills Charter High School (10535 Zelzah Ave., Granada Hills, Calif.), you can watch it live through Ustream!
The panel will also be taking questions through Twitter (#AAPITEACH) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
