1st Annual Summit for Pacific Islander Resources & Education

From Talking Story to Taking Action:
Raising Pacific Islander Voices in Education

Pacific Islanders (PIs) are the fastest-growing demographic in Washington State, and initial data on achievement gaps indicate a need for a more focused approach in addressing the educational disparities within the PI community. Scholars have called for a disaggregation of Asian and Pacific Islander data in order to better understand and highlight previously obscured, yet critical, issues affecting the PI community, and PIs are mobilizing for policy changes to address these needs.

In this first annual summit, our purpose is to engage and give voice to the broad range of PI community constituents who are concerned with PI education from early learning through higher education. The goal of this forum is to identify critical issues affecting PI education and successful strategies which can be used to develop a reform agenda to inform culturally-compatible policy and practices at all levels, from individual, family, and community to local, state, and national.
