AACE President YuKong Zhao Attended Education Journalist Conference in Atlanta

On October 3, 2017, Mr. YuKong Zhao, the President of Asian American
Coalition for Education (AACE), attended the Education Writer
Association’s panel discussion on “Affirmative Action’s Next Big
Test.”

During the Panel Discussion, Mr. Zhao explained to attending education
journalists that the U.S. Supreme Court has banned the use of racial
quotas, racial stereotypes and higher standards that unduly harm Asian
Americans. He provided compelling evidence from reputable researchers,
former Ivy League admissions officers and Asian American students, to
illustrate that Ivy League schools and other colleges’ discriminatory
admission practices against Asian American children are illegal
violations of Supreme Court laws, and need to be stopped.

Mr. Zhao also emphasized that unlike other ideologically driven Asian
organizations, AACE is fighting for our children’s interest, their
constitutional rights to pursue their American Dream.

This event was organized by Education Writers Association, the
professional organization of members of the media who cover education
at all levels. More than 50 journalists attended this panel
discussion.
