Lisa Delpit contends that recent public education reform efforts, from No Child Left Behind to the proliferation of charter schools, have failed to assist African-American students and address an achievement gap. The author of "Multiplication Is for White People": Raising Expectations for Other People’s Children contends that black students are not being engaged in the classroom and encourages teachers to re-imagine their curriculum and to reach out and establish real connections with their students. She responded to questions from members of the audience in the Langston Room of Busboys and Poets at 14th and V in Washington, D.C. close
