'Fast Food Nation' to become textbook
A public school in Manhattan, the High School for Health Professions and Human Services, plans to purchase more than 1,000 copies of Fast Food Nation, an expose of America's fast-food industry, by muckraker Eric Schlosser. A spokeswoman for the Department of Education, Margie Feinberg, said the book would be used in addition to more conventional textbooks to enhance the school's health-oriented curriculum. The high school, which has an enrollment of 1,559 students, will probably be using Mr. Schlosser's text in multiple grades. [NY Sun]
