S 2304

Requires board of education to provide an individual textbook for each student enrolled in a class.

NJEA supports S-2304 (Rice).  This bill would require a school district board of education to provide an individual textbook for each student enrolled in a class.

Textbooks are an important source of knowledge for students in a class.  A district’s failure to provide students with textbooks can negatively impact a student’s learning, especially for students who are struggling to learn.

It is important that all students have their own textbooks to facilitate their learning, allow them to review material, and complete assignments.  A district’s failure to provide textbooks puts students at a distinct disadvantage.  NJEA asks that you vote yes on S-2304.
