DENVER (AP) - Budget cuts, a shortage of textbooks and the proliferation of cheaper digital online materials that are easier to update are creating a challenge for Colorado school districts.
Mesa County School District officials say students are guaranteed equal access to resources and those who do not have Internet access can request textbooks. However, those students may not get the newest information.
According to the Denver Post, the federal government is urging schools to speed up the transition to digital textbooks in an effort to make sure every student in the country has digital textbooks by 2017. The transition is expected to save money and offer up-to-date educational resources.
