Association of American Publishers, New York, NY.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this book is to chart procedures for the selection and purchase of instructional materials and related services for the public schools. Recent developments cited as having a significant bearing on the selection process are (1) the struggle of minority groups toward new status; (2) the increased political power of parents, students, and teachers; (3) individualized instruction; (4) the development of new teaching tools; (5) groups that want to return to fundamentals and basics in curriculum and content; and (6) the change of the position of women in society. Guidelines are given concerning legal and administrative factors, expenditures, organizing for selection, and the selection process. Selected references are organized by topic. (Author/MLF)
