Part one - Availability of school textbooks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

Part two - Availability of school textbooks in Scotland

These reports, published with the permission of the RNIB, document the results of the 'Children's Right to Read School Textbooks' project undertaken by LISU for the RNIB. The projects were part of the long-running 'Right to Read' Campaign.

Part one of the study took place during December 2005 – February 2006 and focussed on the most popular texts used in England, Wales and Northern Ireland at Key Stages 3 and 4 for selected core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science and Welsh) and reference texts such as dictionaries and atlases.

The second part of the study (July – September 2006) investigated the availability of textbooks for the Scottish curriculum in the same subject areas.
