Apparently many teachers are too new to the filed to remember when a common book was used by all. The argument for/against academic freedom speaks volumes for a teacher's ingenuity and flexibility. And since when did Texas teachers have full academic freedom? You are Republican and Christian or you are marginalized. In reality, so much for those indignant arguments.

Digital versions can be licensed by the city/state/county and allow students to pay membership access on a monthly basis. Common books for lower level classes don't strangle a teacher's academic freedom. The book is a common core and any talented teacher can augment that core with additional materials. This will keep the costs of "books" to the lowest level for the students and allow for the latest materials via electronic updates - very eco friendly.
