Asian/American Curricular Epistemicide

In this important book, Nicholas Hartlep and Daniel Scott's detailed analyses on both visual and historical representations of Asian Americans in textbooks and teacher manuals used in our elementary and secondary schools poignantly tell us that generations of children are growing up being fed this single story about Asian Americans. As Hartlep and Scott write. Asian Americans have once again been constructed as the 'good minority' that can succeed on their own and be used as a political instrument to shame the Blacks for their underachievement and their fight for equality. Over and over again, the media has been telling 'a single story' about Asian Americans to the public for the past fifty years. The consequence of this fabricated story is that it 'discourages others-even Asian-Americans themselves-from believing in the validity of their struggles' (Linshi, 2014, p. 1).
