High School Textbooks and the Joy of Reading

Here's an excellent column from last week's USA Today addressing the problems with high school literature textbooks.

The only one of my children not currently homeschooling is a high school senior, and she heartily concurs with the author's points. The same girl who loves to read Shakespeare for fun on summer vacation finds literature textbooks deadly dull. Fortunately they will mainly be reading complete novels this year!
