Preface (Textbooks and Schooling in the United States)

by David L. Elliott & Arthur Woodward - 1990

As the contributors in this volume indicate, textbooks are both an enduring feature and a present problem of great magnitude as we continue to think about improving the quality of education in this country. It is our hope that this yearbook will not only present a review of the issues of the present but also point directions for research and development in the future, and thus be another benchmark in scholarship on the textbook.
