Overview

Why Is Your House Bigger than Mine? is a fictional narrative in which Sydnee Jenkins, a young precocious 12-year-old from one of Detroit's most destitute neighborhoods, learns just why she lives in the ghetto, while all of her classmates live in the more affluent suburbs. When an argument sparks between her and a classmate, Sydnee, along with her intellectually endowed classmates, begins to understand the true meaning of the "privileged" and the "underprivileged," and the difference between what's "equitable" and "equal." This quarrel opens up the doors of learning that cannot be found in a textbook, and it gives her teacher the autonomy to either teach about the issues or disregard the history that explains to us about white flight, blockbusting, redlining, and racial segregation that even exists to date.
