ETHNOGENIC IDENTIFICATION, A SURVEY OF THE PICTORIAL CONTENT OF SELECTED CURRENT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEXTBOOKS.
ROBERTS, LAUNEY F., JR.
THIS IS A FOLLOWUP OF A STUDY CONDUCTED IN 1960 OF SELECTED TEXTBOOK PUBLISHERS TO ASCERTAIN IF THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THEIR EDITORIAL, ARTISTIC, AND PUBLISHING VIEWS AND PRACTICES REGARDING THE USE OF MULTIRACIAL PICTURES IN ELEMENTARY TEXTBOOKS. IT IS ALSO AN ASSESSMENT OF THE CURRENT VIEWS AND PRACTICES OF OTHER MAJOR TEXTBOOK PUBLISHERS REGARDING THE USE OF VARIOUS ETHNIC GROUPS (ESPECIALLY MINORITIES) IN BOOKS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN. TWENTY-SIX FIRMS WERE SENT QUESTIONNAIRES, AND IT WAS FOUND THAT HALF OF THEM WERE ATTEMPTING TO PORTRAY "A TRUE PICTURE OF LIFE IN AMERICA." THIS FINDING SHOWED SOME CHANGE SINCE THE ORIGINAL SURVEY. TEN FIRMS WOULD NOT RESPOND, INCLUDING THREE FROM THE ORIGINAL SURVEY. THE IMPORTANCE OF MULTIRACIAL MATERIAL TO BOTH WHITES AND MINORITY GROUPS IS STRESSED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "QUARTERLY REVIEW OF HIGHER EDUCATION AMONG NEGROES," VOLUME 35, NUMBER 3, JULY 1967. (AF)
