New textbooks riddled with mistakes, according to NYC teachers

Teachers across the city have been reporting problems with the new reading and writing textbooks recommended by the Department of Education.

The teachers say the lessons from publishing giant Pearson are poorly planned.

They say the textbooks are too long and full of mistakes.

The teachers say they even found pages printed upside down and the teacher’s manual simply does not match the student text books.

A spokesperson said, “Individual teachers have wide discretion over which parts to use, and while some teachers may be struggling during this transition, that doesn’t justify attacks on the instructional value of the curriculum.”
