INSIDE OUR SCHOOLS
Harvard Education Press, 2017
"Her essay presents a complicated image that is rarely found in stories about public schools, and the narrative form allows for the kind of context that numbers alone belie. Oki does not shy away from sharing how she thinks the school should have been better, but she shows us how the decisions made at the time seemed sensible within a “rigged system” set up by local, state, and federal education policy. It is this real-life complexity with which educators and policymakers must contend if we are serious about improving all schools."
- Editor, Brett Gardiner Murphy

INSULTS REAL OR PERCEIVED: THE DEBATE OVER MICROAGGRESSION
NPR/WAMU Kojo Nnamdi Show, 2014
"Even an unintended slight can sting: A stranger asks an Asian-American student, “No, where are you REALLY from?” A professor seems surprised when a black student aces an exam. A growing number of college students are chronicling and discussing these perceived insults on blogs and social media, under the heading of “microaggression.” Kojo asks whether such slights are a hurtful form of prejudice or an unavoidable result of an increasingly diverse society."
