Agent Pawan Dhingra (Hyper Education)

June 7, 2021


🎙Your lesson, should you choose to accept it, is to become more culturally competent🌏 by exploring research📙 on the varied educational📝 attitudes and experiences of Asian-American immigrants🔑. The special agent🕵🏽‍♂️assigned to help you with this task is Dr. Pawan Dhingra of Amherst College.


In our conversation we discuss:

1️⃣ What Pawan has learned through his research of how some Asian immigrant parents and their children view American school systems

2️⃣ How teachers can navigate relationships with parents when educational attitudes aren’t in sync (and how they may be more aligned than we realize)

3️⃣ Becoming a more culturally competent teacher and communicator
