INDEX OF TEXTBOOK PRICES.
GOLDSTEIN, HAROLD; AND OTHERS
THE RISE IN COSTS OF TEXTBOOKS AND RELATED EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS WAS STUDIED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION WHICH WOULD ASSIST EDUCATION AUTHORITIES IN THE PREPARATION OF INSTITUTIONAL BUDGETS. THE STUDY WAS STRUCTURED INTO (1) ELEMENTARY-SECONDARY SCHOOL TEXTS AND RELATED MATERIALS AND (2) COLLEGE LEVEL TEXTS AND RELATED MATERIALS. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM THE GUIDE "TEXTBOOKS IN PRINT" AND ARRANGED BY (1) THE SUBJECT DIVISIONS USED IN THE GUIDE, (2) THE GRADE LEVEL, AND (3) THE FORM OF MATERIAL. THE THREE GROUPINGS WERE THEN CODED AND KEYPUNCHED FOR TABULATION. ANALYSES INDICATED WHILE SCHOOL TEXTBOOKS AT ALL LEVELS HAD RISEN IN COST, THE RISE WAS LESS THAN THAT REVEALED IN THE STUDY OF GENERAL PUBLICATIONS WHICH APPEARED IN "THE COST OF LIBRARY MATERIALS," 1961. ALSO, THE FIELDS OF SCIENCE, SOCIAL SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND APPLIED SCIENCE REFLECTED THE HIGHEST PRICE RISE. (RS)
