She emphasizes that students can expand their creativity through writing in a meaningful context as they develop new writing skills, and encourages truly skilled teachers-those with good intentions to admit their role as power brokers, to use both “skills” and “process” approach, reexamine their instructional techniques, to see their students as unique, multi-dimensional individuals and embrace the different cultures, and ethnic identities brought to classroom which in turn guides students to establish their own independence and let their opinions be regarded in society because the prejudice that teachers place on the cultural difference has tremendous impact on school community and student’s performance within the environment, as well.
When educators of color who are familiar with these students’ culture try to suggest alternative methods for teaching, they are silenced. When they refuse to take part in the debate because nobody listens, their silence is misinterpreted as acquiescence. So, standards to suit American middle class children continue to be used to evaluate children of color, to whom these systems are foreign. Delpit is interested in promoting the kind of education that would have a transformative effect on individuals and society. She believes that nothing will be gained in the educational system if people continue to shut out people who have different beliefs and interpretations from their own.
I agree that the absence of voice in any society is a big problem, and at times they are not heard because their thinking or beliefs differ from the majority dominant. Often educators don’t want to change or be irreverent in order to survive, be accepted and succeed in the existent society, which is predominant white and have deemed to standard all its rules. Besides, people are afraid of difference and don’t know how to cope and react to it. As in black-and-white friction it can mean giving up to their culture and identification. Furthermore, understanding that there are sensible reasons why people act and hold the beliefs that they do is necessary.
Delpit, feels that a sense of flexibility will benefit everyone and give to all members in society, regardless of any racial factors, a more balanced voice.
