Freyer Calls for Textbook Purchase Moratorium

Want to think outside of the proverbial "Box" today? Go visit Wesley Freyer's "Infinite Thinking Machine" and join in the conversation he's started about mounting a moratorium on the purchase of dead-tree-based textbooks. Note that he's not advocating the end of their publication, but calling for a movement to break the textbook industry's stranglehold on educational budgets. I'm wondering how much better my 1000 for my two kids texbooks this year might have been spent on a new laptop for each of them...

Vickie Davis bellied up her counter-opinion in her blog, CoolCatTeacher. What to YOU think?
