“[Delpit] focuses urgently on the issue of expectation—and the solutions she proposes feel both simple and radical.”
—The Boston Globe
“[Delpit] is a keen student of the way that ideas and practices take on new meanings in cultural contexts, including the context of unequal power.”
“All readers can appreciate this thought-provoking book. . . .The quality of education that Delpit advocates for Black children is a high but necessary bar, one that all children need and deserve.”
—Harvard Educational Review
“Anyone concerned with the state of American schooling will find Delpit’s smooth blending of the personal, the professional, and the political appealing and illuminating.”
“At a time when deep thinking about education dilemmas is in short supply, Delpit has produced a volume that forces us to do just that.”
—Pedro Noguera, author of The Trouble with Black Boys and executive director of the NYU Metropolitan Center for Urban Education
“We must heed her words of wisdom.”
—Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System
“Clearly articulated discussions about educating young children, teaching adolescents, and working with students at the university level and beyond reflect Delpit’s knowledge and passion about teaching all children. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”

This is such an important book for us educators as we try to educate all students. It helps us reflect on the biases we all hold and convey to our students. I highly recommend it!
