Shift towards e-textbooks is jumpstarting this.
""I don't want to generalize because I don't want to insult people who are working hard to make those resources," a Burlington HS (Mass) principal said of textbooks, "but they're pretty much outdated the minute they're printed and certainly by the time they're delivered.
