Textbooks open for public review

June 22, 2004

Albany- If you want more input into what your children learn in school, now's your chance.

You can review proposed new textbooks at Westover High School.

This is the adoption year for social studies and fine arts textbooks. Anyone can look at the different choices, but teachers' input is needed the most.

"It's really, really important for teachers to come by, read other textbooks and tell us exactly what they think about them," said site coordinator Ann Lynch. "The teacher needs to feel it covers the subject well."

The recommendations will be taken to Atlanta in July. Westover's media center is open weekdays through July 2 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
