"The Silenced Dialogue: Power and Pedagogy in Educating Other People's Children"



Analyzes five rules of power that influence the debate over meeting the educational needs of Black

and poor students. Concludes that all students must be taught the rules of power as a first step to a

more just society.

Delpit's reflections and recommendations are well grounded in both theory and practice. As a sociolinguist and educational anthropologist, she brings a keen and often introspective analytical bent to this volume. She also brings the benefit of two decades of experience in classrooms peopled by an incredibly diverse array of teachers and students, in Native Alaskan schools, in culturally responsive preschools in Papua New Guinea, in resegregated schools in Inner-City, U.S.A., and in vastly different education settings.
