Featured Writing by Punita Rice
Punita Rice is the founder of Punlearning, a lifestyle blog about career, motherhood, balance, style, and education. Outside of Punlearning, Punita’s writing centers around education, education policy, and her area of research: South Asian American student experiences, especially in context of issues such as teacher cultural proficiency, connectedness to school, socioemotional support, executive functioning skills (and related supports), and the model minority myth. She is currently writing her first book, centered around the experiences and stories of South Asian American young people, based on her research, and framed in the context of a post-multicultural America. She is also the director and founder of ISAASE, an outreach organization aimed at improving the experiences of South Asian American students in K-12 settings. Punita has been a visiting scholar at the High-Phi Epic Questions Institute at University of Virginia’s Department of Philosophy, through a National Endowment for the Humanities Grant, has served on and chaired her former school’s literacy committee, and has also taught middle school Social Studies, English, and creative writing.
