The Challenges of Textbook Selection and Adoption in our Public Schools In textbook adoption systems, a committee selects or recommends what books and other primary instructional materials actually get to local classrooms. This process is practiced in up to 25 states. Adoption is done mainly in the South and West and dates back to the Reconstruction era. Procedures for selecting textbooks arose in the states in the late nineteenth century. By the early twentieth century, a balance between the numbers of states using state-level or local-level adoption procedures had been established.
