Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the two fastest-growing populations in the United States. An issue that remains a concern among this population is access to education. Neil Horikoshi, President and Executive Director of the Asian and Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund discusses what's being done to provide educational opportunities to AAPI students.
Regarding the reality facing AAPI students, Horikoshi said, "There is sadly a term... called a model minority myth... People believe that all Asians don't need very much help because we're highly educated, went to the best schools and so forth."
