Lisa Delpit’s latest book, “Multiplication Is for White People”: Raising Expectations for Other People’s Children, is another installment in the author’s crusade to expose the systemic issues with America’s public education system, and their effects on a growing achievement gap between whites and minorities.
More than a critique, Delpit’s book uses classroom stories and analysis of the country’s laundry list of education reforms to provide a promising model to help bridge the gap between whites and minorities in American public schools.
“Multiplication Is for White People”: Raising Expectations for Other People’s Children is now available online and in bookstores.
