- Other People’s Children: Culture Conflict in the Classroom by Lisa Delpit
- We know we are not serving all our kids, so let’s roll up our sleeves and start doing the learning with all appropriate urgency. “This seminal text develops ideas about ways teachers can be better ‘cultural transmitters’ in the classroom, a place 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.”
