John Taylor Gatto has it right:

The designed purpose of schools is to dumb us down. They get better at it every decade.

The admin excuse here is that the students wont read or return the texts, so issuing them isnt necessary. After I extracted a Regent's Chem text, I realized the text had so few illustrations and such dumbed down language that it was worthless. Same for R. Math. I bought what my kid needed to suceed - a real text and a Review book.
