'Multiplication is for White People' is a passionate reminder that there is no achievement gap at birth. Poor teaching, negative stereotypes and a curriculum that does not adequately connect to poor children's lives conspire against the prospects of poor children of colour. From reception classes and on through the university years, Delpit brings the topic of educating other people's children into the twenty-first century, outlining a blueprint for raising expectations based on a simple premise: that all aspects of advanced education are for everyone.
