Summary

"This work develops ideas about ways teachers can be better "cultural transmitters." Lisa Delpit suggests that many academic problems attributed to children of color are actually the result of miscommunication, as teachers and "other people's children" struggle with the imbalance of power and the dynamics of inequality plaguing our society. Other People's Children is a must read for teachers, parents, and administrators strung to eradicate the prejudice and stereotypes that forced ineffective education."--BOOK JACKET.
