Hopefully, this type of legislation will be "coming to a college system
near you" all soon. Books for my daughter's 12units (3 classes) this
semester in community college were $483. And that's a big savings from
last semester, which exceeded $600.
"The current cost of traditional textbooks is so high, some college
students are forced to struggle through a required class without the
textbook, forced to drop classes or sometimes even drop out of college
altogether," Steinberg said in a prepared statement. "There's absolutely no
reason a basic biology, statistics or accounting textbook, for example,
should cost $200."
