We’ve all used textbooks at nearly every level of our education. Some of these textbooks have such a long lifespan, it is impossible for them to remain objective and completely correct for decades, which makes finding errors today an easy task. It is particularly jarring when some of today’s textbooks get things offensively wrong.
Valorebooks.com has listed some of these notable errors, examining errors ranging from incorrect math and grammar to offensive statements and even bigotry.
Keep in mind that some of these textbooks are still in use in classrooms, and the process for changing a textbook can be quite long. Ultimately, it is up to the school boards in the specific districts that still use them to change the curriculum.
