No More Textbooks

AP - Students at Empire High School here started class this year with no textbooks -- but it wasn't because of a funding crisis. Instead, the school issued I Books -- laptop computers by Apple Computer -- to each of its 340 students, becoming one of the first U.S. public schools to shun printed textbooks. School officials believe the electronic materials will get students more engaged in learning. Empire High, which opened for the first time this year, was designed specifically to have a textbook-free environment.
