Multiplication Is for White People: Raising Expectations for Other People's Children

This book is about Lisa Delpit
In "Multiplication Is for White People: Raising Expectations for Other People's Children," MacArthur Award-winning author Lisa Delpit tackles the enduring black/white achievement gap in America’s educational system. Published on March 5, 2013, this incisive book builds on Delpit’s groundbreaking work in "Other People’s Children," offering a profound analysis of how educational reforms have failed to bridge this divide. Delpit explores the landscape of public schools, using her extensive research and firsthand observations to debunk the myth that children of color cannot excel in academia. The book compellingly argues that advanced education should be accessible to all, providing an uplifting blueprint for change across primary, middle, and high schools, as well as college. Aimed particularly at middle-school readers, "Multiplication Is for White People" is essential reading for those interested in educational equity and racial justice, urging a reevaluation of how we set expectations for all students.
