Region views on school textbooks
Korrie Robinson, Hobart | "I think that most are, but some are pretty biased. Based on the better side, but not the entire truth."
James Mayes, Lake Station | "No. There are a lot of books out of date. We're learned things that have been proven wrong."
McKenzie Cobban, Crown Point | "My teachers were actually really good at teaching what we needed to know. A lot of my teachers employed critical thinking."
Kathy Press, Valparaiso | "I'm a middle school teacher, and it depends on the year it was published. Books go six years at a time, so things are kept updated. Now we can use the Web to research and get up-to-date information."
Aaron Armstrong, Gary | "No. I think it's a conspiracy, something they do to brainwash our kids. Like Lincoln, it's as if he was about ending slavery but he probably had slaves himself."
Kerrie Brubaker, Kouts | "Yes. I'm an educator, and I hope they are. There's actual research to back them up as well as historical records."
