Argues that the performance of black students in math and science is crippled not by lack of intelligence or diligence bu by linguistic interference. Using student work from an experiental program she helped establish in the District of Columbia, the author traces specific ways nonstandard English usage can lead not merely to non-understanding but to actual misunderstanding.
