“A must-read not only for South Asian American students and educators, but also for anyone who teaches or works in higher education today.”

—Ajay Nair, President, Arcadia University

South Asian American Experiences in Schools: Brown Voices from the Classroom combines original research with deep examination of existing scholarly and popular works to offer a look at what it means to be Brown in American K-12 schools.

Based on Dr. Punita Rice's research, conducted through Johns Hopkins University's School of Education, the book focuses on South Asian American research participants' K-12 experiences, especially in context of teacher cultural proficiency and belief in the model minority myth. The book offers anecdotes, quotes, and quantitative data, examined through the lens of today's society, to provide guidance for how educators, policymakers, and the community might improve experiences for South Asian American–and all students–in our increasingly diverse schools.
