Choosing Textbooks. Reflections of a State Board President.
Kirst, Michael W.
American Educator: The Professional Journal of the American Federation of Teachers, v8 n2 p18-23 Sum 1984
The author recounts his experiences in the textbook adoption process during his tenure on the California State Board of Education from 1975 to 1981. The focus on legal criteria (such as the reflection of cultural or racial diversity or print and page size), he argues, too often overrides concern with quality of the books' contents. (GC)
