The Associated Press, in a story carried by the Houston Chronicle, reports that the Texas Legislature’s efforts to bring more laptops into classrooms might come at the expense of textbooks themselves. The legislators pushing for a laptop program would prefer to see students download their instructional materials from the internet, thereby saving the state money on textbooks. Critics of the laptop plan are outraged that students might not have access to the latest printed instructional materials.
