Oops… Elsevier has a red face!

From Jessamyn at librarian.net a story about how Elsevier was offering gift certificates for five star reviews on Amazon.com for its textbook.  My two cents… seems that some of us have forgotten what textbooks and education are really about.  This remains true in the public school systems around the country.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m not condemning all of them, but many are beginning to teach to the test – even in second grade!  There have to be other options – get the kids involved doing portfolios, get them in the library, get them off the couch and destressing – please!
