The Grim Truth of Textbook Publishing?

March 25, 2008 - 2:00am ||| 0 Comments | Add new

Many of my clients are textbook publishers, designers or compositors; so I thought I knew a little bit about the field. But when I read this article (reprinted from Edutopia magazine) written by someone with deep experience in the industry, I could hardly believe my eyes. As a former public school teacher (way back in a previous life), it was one of the most depressing things I've ever read.

I suppose this is why my friends who are teachers (or who are home schooling their kids) are always cobbling together their own source materials instead of using a textbook.
