Bye the books? Some educators say textbooks are giving way to modern technology

Lea Dotson couldn’t understand why her daughter wasn’t bringing any textbooks home from school. She became increasingly concerned early in the school year as days, even weeks, passed and the fourth-grader at Warren City Schools McGuffey K-8 building still had no books. Dotson asked the teacher about it. She then asked members of the Warren City Schools Board of Education. Months later she says she still is waiting for answers. “I always had textbooks. I don’t understand why my child doesn’t have them, and it really bothers me,” she said. ”I believe every child should have his or her own textbooks in every subject. They need books to do homework, to study. It should be a priority.”
