  • Yes they should be free

    Yes, we are already paying just to attend a college so why pay for the text books? They should come with the money we are putting into a college to attend it. Some students can barley afford to go to college alone but, also buying textbook's and all the supplies you will need?

  • Yes, and so should tuition

    In this day and age in America where there are billionaires who make more money than many countries do, absolutely college textbooks should be free. And so should the tuition. In the 21st century, in the richest country in the world, every person should have the right to a free education from kindergarten through college. Instead, our educational system is financed through student loans obtained from...You guessed it....Big banks! It as an absolute travesty that huge financial institutions in this country are getting even richer on the backs of millions of college students.

  • No, they should not be free.

    By the time you are 18 or so, you should have learned about responsibility and therefore be able to buy and care for your own things. You should have some money saved from your high school and college jobs. If you can't afford it, sorry. Nothing is completely free, someone has to pay for those books. If it is the government paying, that's just more taxes for people to pay. Why do people not in college need to pay for someone who is in college? When can people be able to rely on themselves to provide money instead of the government?

  • Yes! Most definitely.

    As a student, I realised that textbooks really should be free, as you pay for all other expenses, anyway. The UK tuition fee cost alone is £9000, and this does not include anything but tuition. It's very high in pretty much every student's opinion, but we are mainly annoyed at the fact that this doesn't even include £120 worth of textbooks for the first year.

  • Yes they should be free

    Textbooks in high school were free as long as you did not mess them up, but as you enter college textbooks as jacked up and you pay 3 times the amount they are worth. So should textbooks be free as long as we doing mess them up. I want some pros and cons to this

  • No they shouldn't be free, but they shouldn't require replacing with such frequency either.

    They shouldn't be free, but they shouldn't use new books every other year. Some things don't need to be updated that often, some things do. A math book from 10 years ago is probably just as useful today as it was then, so why do school require students to upgrade every year or so? Simple, Money. Bookstores/Publishers want more money and they probably give some of that back to the school.

No such thing as free anyway. If we didn't buy books, they would just increase the costs to go to school anyway (so we would pay for them regardless).

You'd think they would be...
