$45.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

This article deals with some of the cultural transferability problems, which occur when school textbooks, written in English, and, from a Western-dominated perspective to knowledge, science, technology and development, are commissioned and adapted for local cultures, targeting indigenous groups and minorities. The article focuses on micro-societal dimensions, particularly the role of the local cultures, languages and their affect on students’ perception of learning in the classroom settings.
