SHOULD SCHOOLS REPLACE BOOKS WITH e-READERS???
Teemo

Con

There are many reasons why schools shouldn't replace books with e-readers. I will start with the main one, financial. For the school to have e-readers, every child should be able to have one, at the same time. In the united states, the average amount of children that go to middle school are 595 people. http://nces.ed.gov... So to make everyone be able to read, we would need to buy 595 e-readers, plus more for teachers. An e-reader can coat a bit more than 100$ http://www.bestbuy.ca... So we would need 595 e-readers, each costing around 100$, that would be almost 595 000$! The school does not have this money. They can use it for more productive things, like computers, or art supplies, perhaps renovations. This is why schools should stick to books, instead of having e-readers.

I made a mistake. It is actually 5950$. I apologize. Otherwise, arguments extended.

You also have to pay extra to buy a specific book for each and every e-reader.
