Publisher's Summary

Winner of an American Educational Studies Association Critics' Choice Award and Choice Magazine's Outstanding Academic Book Award, and voted one of Teacher Magazine's "great books", Other People's Children has sold over 150,000 copies since its original hardcover publication. This 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 Award-winning 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 people's children" struggle with the imbalance of power and the dynamics plaguing our system.

    "Wow! A must read!"

    If you are looking for a multicultural resource, no matter what your field, this is IT! The principles outlined by Delpit can be applied to almost any field of multiculturalism: communication, collaboration, connection, education, ministry of any kind. This book is NOT just for educators. It is for all. I am thoroughly impressed.
