Politico: Morning Education Roundup
DISPATCH FROM EWA IN ATLANTA: The president of a group representing Asian Americans that spearheaded the complaint about Harvard’s admissions policies that’s prompted a Justice Department investigation said he’s disappointed that some people would say his group is being used in the affirmative action debate to create division. YuKong Zhao, president of the Asian American Coalition for Education, said his group isn’t representing “right-wing” interests. “We are fighting for our interests,” he said. He said it’s clear there’s “illegal discrimination” affecting Asian American college applicants. His group backs ending race-based admissions policies.
