State asks public to pick textbooks

July 3, 2003 

(Augusta-AP) -- The state is asking the public to review textbooks and instructional materials published by 33 companies in the subjects of foreign language, high school language arts and English as a second language.

The favorites will then make a state list of materials that can be purchased by each county's school system. In Augusta, the public has the chance to browse the materials at John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. Similar opportunities are being held at ten other schools across the state.

Since the review began last week in Augusta, about 50 teachers and parents have evaluated the material. The Augusta advisory committee will meet later this month to compile the list of favorites to be submitted to the Georgia Board of Education.
