Procedures for Textbook and Instructional Materials Selection. ERS Report.
Kunder, Linda H.
Textbook and instructional materials selection procedures obtained from a survey of 414 selected school districts in 33 states and the District of Columbia are presented and analyzed in this report. Seventeen states were not included because the selection process in these states occurs at the state rather than at the local school system level. Administrators responsible for textbook and instructional materials selection were asked to describe their district's methods of selection, the composition of their selection committee, and any problems that their district has had with selection. Other portions of the report consist of a review of the literature, including a discussion of major concerns of persons and agencies responsible for the selection of textbooks and instructional materials, and examples of procedures being used by local school systems.
