States eye textbooks more carefully

3 December 1986

Abstract

Textbooks in Oregon are being looked at with a more careful eye. Darrell Wright is a member of the Oregon Textbook Commission and is one of six members who decide what books school districts can choose from. The article states how there are several books that are currently in fights as to whether they will be approved or not. The author, Pinkerton, then shifts focus onto history textbooks and how controversial subjects are treated in certain textbooks. The main issue that is addressed in the article is how some textbooks are removing any reference to God or religion when talking about the first Thanksgiving.
