What is it about?

Because of governmental decisions the school book selection is narrower each year. From the school year 2019/2020 the only possibility is to order state funded books, full with professional misconducts. With their critical analysis the History Teachers Association (TTE) made this topic a public affair, keeping in the public discourse the importance of quality books and the freedom of choice.
