After officially beating cancer, the boy’s family had enrolled him into a new school in the county. One day, his father, only identified by the surname Zhou, discovered his son’s humiliation in class when he returned home without his midterm grades.
He later confessed to his father that his teacher refused to allow him to take the midterm test, declaring that he is “contagious” and forcing him to sit alone in the back of the class.
The principal of the school has initiated an investigation regarding the allegations of discrimination that the boy faced.

Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
