Experts split on 'Kindle in Every Backpack'
Posted by: Justina Spencer
Education experts are split after a recent proposal published by some influential members of the Democratic Party suggested the government provide electronic reading devices to every student in the United States.

The New Democratic Leadership Council's (DLC) paper, "A Kindle in Every Backpack: A proposal for eTextbooks in American Schools," published July 14, states that government should supply each student in the country with an electronic reading device, allowing textbooks to be cheaply distributed and updated. It also would allow teachers to tailor an interactive curriculum that engages digital age learners.
