Cultural Conflict in the Classroom: by Lisa Delpit
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 colour 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.
A new classic among educators, ‘Other People’s Children’ is a must-read for teachers, administrators, and parents striving to improve the quality of the education system.
