I was wondering if text books are generally used in State High schools in most subjects? My partner is currently studying to be a high school teacher and at the school where he does prac. they don't have text books. He teaches year 8 & 9. I find this very concerning. I would have thought that text books would be run of the mill in high school. I
I have also heard that some high schools have text books for science but not for history. So there may be a text book for one subject but not another...
I believe that good text books are a very important part of schooling - in fact I'd like to see them in primary school.
Thanks for feedback
