Introduction (The Textbook in American Education)

by J. B. Edmonson - 1931

This statement may not be in accord with the usual theory, but it is supported by the facts reported by supervisors and state inspectors of schools. In view, therefore, of the important place of the textbook in our educational practice, the preparation and the selection of textbooks is a problem of major importance.
