Emil Amok: Why Destroy The Best Thing in Public Education? Addressing Equity and Diversity at SF’s Lowell High In A Way That Doesn’t Hurt Us All.

I’m an alumnus of Lowell, a San Francisco native, and I hate what they want to do to Lowell High. It was more important to me than going to Harvard.

My op-ed piece in the SF Chronicle on the proposed lottery for admissions to Lowell High.

I say it’s a bad gamble.
Read why.

A lottery is about luck. Let’s be intentional about fixing racism in the schools. I mentioned some ways it could be done while keeping Lowell an academic school.  But that would take some leadership and thought.

I talk about it here in this video:

Emil Amok: Listen to my podcast farewell to Corky Lee, Asian America’s “photographer laureate.” Plus my 2017 APA Heritage Month conversation with Corky.

I say goodbye to Corky here as I read the piece from the AALDEF blog.
Then, listen to the 2017 conversation where Corky talks about his life and why the Transcontinental Railroad picture meant so much to him.
At the end, he gets emotional about his friend, historian Philip Choy who taught Chinese American history at San Francisco State University.
It’s a revealing moment in a conversation that shows Corky, the person, the man behind the lens, who at times was invisible to us all as he stalked the best shot at Asian American events.
It’s one of the few times we took the time to really talk to each other.

It’s my “all-in-one” podcast tribute to Corky.
