What Does It Mean to Call a School Too Academic? Microaggressions Aimed at Asian Parents
Community Village Sites's insight:


I know exactly what you're talking about. 


I know a set of parents who would not consider moving to Cupertino because the schools are 'too competitive'. I'm still not sure if that was racist code for they didn't want to live around too many Asians. 


This set of parents also pulled their child out of a Redwood City school because too many people spoke Spanish.
