second gen east asian am parents study

On AngryAsianMan!

Researchers at the University of Maryland, College Park are interested in learning how “second gen” Korean and Chinese American parents approach education and child-rearing for their “third gen” children. We are looking for people who fit the following criteria to participate in a one-time interview: 1) Your parents are immigrants and you were born in the U.S. or immigrated before age 7 2) You are of Korean or Chinese descent 3) You have at least one child over the age of 6 4) You reside in the DC metro (DC/MD/VA) or LA/OC area. 

We’d like to understand your experiences as a parent, your memories of your own experiences with education, and reflections on education in the Asian American community. You will receive a $10 gift card for participating in an hour long interview. If you are open to being interviewed and/or have questions, please contact Assistant Professor Julie Park at Thank you!

Know parents (who fit my random criteria)?  Send em my way.

This study cites The Bucket List in its intro, as well as Dead Poets Society’s call to “Carpe Diem.” (They also reference YOLO, and I think now’s a good time to acknowledge that once a term makes its way into academic studies, it’s probably no longer hip.)

The song in the background is by the one and only Chris Changchien, who has looked like an adult since he was 12 years old.  Super proud.
