Delpit's collection of essays highlights striking problems in American education that still impact students 20 years after its initial publication. As Delpit conveys the challenges and frustrations of an educational system that devalues minorities, Lisa Renee Pitts's emphatic, raspy voice carries listener through the numerous points and ideas explored. She also does well with Delpit's sometimes ironic and sardonic commentary, delivering lines with the right timing and projection. One challenge of the book is that the essays often repeat facts, anecdotes, and information, which can be problematic for the listener since it's difficult to fast-forward without getting too lost. However, the listening does provide strong critical insight into how schools continue to fail students. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2016]
