Why We Need Japanese American History Education...
Japanese American history education is needed now more than ever. Why? Hear it from classroom teachers themselves:
“It is important for students to learn that fear, racism, personal agendas, and mass hysteria can replace common sense, decency, and democratic ideals. They must understand that the incarceration of Japanese Americans was wrong, that racism is wrong. Students must understand that this sort of hysteria can occur again and they must do their part to make sure that it does not.”
