“What is ‘new’ in the new school textbooks”

Achilleas Kapsalis


The author looks critically into the new compulsory education textbooks in an attempt to find out “what is new with the new school textbooks”. He states that, although much progress has been made in terms of their content, the teaching methods they are associated with and the processes related to their authoring and approval, much still needs to be done. To his point of view present difficulties and drawbacks should be attributed to the lack of relevant research in the field.
