In a radical analysis of contemporary classrooms, Delpit develops ideas about ways teachers can be better "cultural translators." Delpit also addresses the origins of these problems in the recruitment process, graduate school training, teaching supervision, and professional advancement of teachers of color.
" ...she pleads for educational planning that begins with scrupulous reaffirmation of the heritage of home and community while giving students the skills to participate in the dominant culture."
Andrew Kaplan, Chicago Tribune BooksReview:
"...Other Poeple's Children is a godsend. Lisa Delpit hits upon many timely issues. Her attempts to be both honest and fair, yet visionary and firm make this a rewarding text."
