A must read Aug 7, 2008
This book is a must read for educators and those interested in the future of education for everyone. Not only is the author gifted in her presentation but also a fantastic speaker.

This book is a must read for teachers. It should be required of teachers teaching students of color. I have used this books with my college students and it has helped them to understand a lot about the present problem of the academic achievement gap and how to turn it around.
Anyone who cannot see the value of this book, has little understanding of the problem and potential solutions.
What a CROCK Nov 27, 2007
This has got to be one of the most ridiculous books ever written about education. God forbid that we try and teach children to subscribe to cultural norms. The idiot who wrote this book apparently thinks we should instead teach them to embrace a culture that will not help them to succeed in life outside the educational system. I'm sorry, speaking Ebonics isn't going to help you get a job, dressing like a gang banger isn't going to do you any favors either. Don't waste your time on this garbage.
This book is excellent! Jul 29, 1999
As an inner city school educator, I encourage all teachers to read this eye opening book. I had a chance to hear the author in person. She has a story to tell. You leave her feeling that you can change the world. The book is easy to read and if you are like me you will pick it up again and again. I learned a lot. I refer to it often. It is informative and provides the reader with some actual things one can do in the classroom. Several other teachers have read it also. Their comment is "The book has really helped". It will be a part of our professional development program this school year.
