About the book:

Winner of an American Educational Studies Association Critics Choice Award and Choice Magazines Outstanding Academic Book Award, and voted one of Teacher Magazines “great books, Other Peoples Children has sold over 150,000 copies since its original hardcover publication. This anniversary paperback edition features a new introduction by Delpit as well as new framing essays by Herbert Kohl and Charles Payne.

In a radical analysis of contemporary classrooms, MacArthur Awardwinning author Lisa Delpit develops ideas about ways teachers can be better “cultural transmitters in the classroom, where prejudice, stereotypes, and cultural assumptions breed ineffective education. Delpit suggests that many academic problems attributed to children of color are actually the result of miscommunication, as primarily white teachers and “other peoples children struggle with the imbalance of power and the dynamics plaguing our system.

A new classic among educators, Other Peoples Children is a must-read for teachers, administrators, and parents striving to improve the quality of Americas education system.
