In response to Anite Gore Clarks comments I have to point a few problems with her logic out. 1st off the Kindle E-readers are now cheaper then a single text book costs ($79 vs anywhere from $60-$100+) anymore and with the E-reader all their books can be put onto one e-reader. Also Textbooks become outdated and obsolete quickly as schools can not afford to update print books as often as e-books which can be instantly updated if need be with information so #6 is pantently false. As far as the concern of damage issues hold the parents or students responsible same as if they lost the textbook which as I stated wouldnt be too expensive. If these kids can afford $100+ tennis shoes then they can afford to replace a kindle they break. As for software if they schools were to stick to simple e-readers such as the Kindle or Nook software issues would be next to nil. I would not advocate spending money on tablets as that would open up the possibility of students dl'd software inappropriate to it especially games and such which would distract from the learning purpose of the devices.
