“This electronic thing is too much too soon for too many students,” Robert Marsh, a history teacher, told the Pasco County School Board in Florida last week. The school district adopted new social studies textbooks this year, but in a break from past practices, teachers were provided just one set of books, which were to be kept in the classroom. Students, instead of having a textbook to take home, were to tap into an online version. That’s not worked out too well, Marsh said. Source: The Tampa Tribune
