Anti-Korean Comments in the Classroom

On September 7, 2017, a teacher at Bergen County Academies in NJ made anti-Korean comments in the classroom. According to The Korean Daily, the Bergen County Academies teacher asked students about their culture and said that she loved those but "hated Korean." The teacher has since reportedly issued a verbal apology to the students. The Council of Korean Americans is monitoring this situation and have let local Korean American leaders know they have our full support.

We condemn the use of hateful and threatening words against any group of people.
