Other People's Children: Cultural Conflict in the Classroom
Synopses & Reviews
A MacArthur Fellow's revolutionary analysis of the role of race in the classroom.
Book News Annotation:
Delpit (chair, Urban Educational Leadership, Georgia State U.) suggests that many of the academic problems attributed to children of color are actually the result of miscommunication between ethnic communities and white teachers. She analyzes culture clashes in classrooms from Alaska to Papua New Guinea to illustrate how to educate teachers to accommodate ethnic and cultural diversity.
