Should kindle paperwhite be distributed to students in Year 10 (U.K)?
I think they should because of the money that they could save on books.


The cost of a Kindle Paper white is "109

First off, you'll have to buy somewhere in the region of 50 books just to re-imburse costs {By that I mean saving approximately "109], And then you also have to bear in mind there are not hundreds of places to charge a kindle at a school so many people will be deprived of their kindle for prolonged periods of time when they run out of charge.

This is a problematic proposition and I also think the school budget would run dry very quickly.

Thanks to the change of prices on school meals i am sure that there won't be much of problem to save money .


What you've just said is an opinionated and and variable statement. Lets say there are 150 students in a year which you plan to give kindles to. 109 multiplied by 150 is equivalent to 16350 pounds. Multiply this by the 164 government funded schools and you get the grand sum of "2.68 Million.

I'm pretty sure this isn't an economical thing to do.

NB: All the pound signs I insert turn into speech marks for some reason.
