i think they should allow tablets to replace textbooks. tablets last longer and are much more lighter to carry around than a textbook and they carry way more information than a textbook. With tablets you can look up all kinds of stuff you want.
You proved a valid point allthough how many people can afford a tablet that is affordable yet has all the same requirments. that every one needs and if the schools funding them that would cost the school thousands of dollars in not needed expenses. im sure every kid wants a lighter textbook but i really dont think the schools really dont care.
they also dont care that much about the students labours by carrying textbooks, LIKE REALLY SUCK IT UP.
