South Asian American Experiences in Schools: Brown Voices from the Classroom is about South Asian American experiences in K-12 settings, and is based on the research of Dr. Punita Rice, conducted through Johns Hopkins University’s School of Education.

This book tells the stories of South Asian Americans in K-12 schools, through a look at their perceptions, experiences, and support needs in school, especially in context of teacher cultural proficiency and belief in “the model minority myth” (the perception of Asians as the perfect minority). It mixes stories, quotes, and anecdotes with quantitative research to paint picture of the varied, complex experiences of Brown kids in schools. The book examines existing scholarly and popular literature to offer deeper context, and to provide guidance for how educators, policymakers, and the community might improve experiences for South Asian American, and all students, in increasingly diverse schools.

“…a must-read not only for South Asian American students and educators, but also for anyone who teaches or works in higher education today… has brought crucial attention to the complex realities of being a Brown student in American schools.”
—Ajay Nair, President, Arcadia University
