Textbook Troubles.
Jones, Rebecca
American School Board Journal, v187 n12 p18-21 Dec 2000
Recent reports criticize today's glitzy, coffee-table textbooks as shallow, dumbed-down products that waste taxpayers' money and students' learning potential. Districts should encourage more textbook research, clarify expectations, have someone read texts under consideration, refuse to purchase inferior textbooks, and watch for online developments. (MLH)
