In her long-awaited second book, Delpit presents a striking picture of the elements of contemporary public education that conspire against the prospects for poor children of color, creating a persistent gap in achievement during the school years that has eluded several decades of reform.Delpits bestselling and paradigm-shifting first book, Other Peoples Children, focused on cultural slippage in the classroom between white teachers and students of color. Called phenomenal (San Francisco Review of Books) and a godsend [that is] honest and fair, yet visionary and firm (Quarterly Black Review), it received multiple awards and continues to garner high acclaim.

Now, in Multiplication Is for White People, Delpit reflects on two decades of reform efforts--including No Child Left Behind, standardized testing, the creation of alternative teacher certification paths, and the charter school movement--that still have left a generation of poor children of color feeling that higher math isnt for them.In her wonderful trademark style, punctuated with telling classroom anecdotes and informed by time spent at dozens of schools across the country, Delpit outlines an inspiring and uplifting blueprint for raising expectations for other peoples children, based on a simple premise: multiplication is for everyone.
