The Influence of Anti-Asian Discrimination and Violence on Asian-American Educators 

Project Summary: In response to the current coronavirus pandemic and anti-Asian discrimination and violence, we conduct a mixed-method longitudinal study over the course of one year among 480 Asian American Teachers in the San Francisco Unified School District. Findings from this project will advance our scientific understanding about the longitudinal impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent anti-Asian discrimination and violence on Asian American teachers’ short-term and long-term well-being and teacher workforce. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive framework of best practices detailing how schools can effectively support the psychological and professional well-being of educators, particularly those who are experiencing discrimination and violence based on their group membership during and following the pandemic and subsequent social crises.
