    All Students Count Act: Why aren't arab-americans accounted for?

    There has been a lot of buzz about the All Students Count Act lately. It focuses on the disaggregation of data for the K-12 levels and will help minimize educational disparity in our country. Upon reading the act, I found out that Arab-Americans were still not being adequately accounted for in this act. Although I believe this act is a step in the right direction, Arab-Americans still need to make their voices heard. Join in the campaign and make Congress aware that children in our school system from the Middle East too should be mentioned in this act and no longer classified under the "white" category.
