There are numerous reasons why schools should not replace textbooks with tablets. First of is where are they going to get the money? With all the budget cuts, they can barely keep teachers, where are they going to get money for laptops? Second of is that no matter how hard schools try, laptops are going to be broken. This adds on additional waste to our environment, at least textbooks can be recycled if they are work out. Also kids will be distracted when they can use laptops. When my class at school get a laptop, most of the kids in my class don't actually work, we sit there playing games like 2048 for the entire period instead of ding what we are supposed to. This does not help.
