"Digital instructional content" coming to Texas?

Huh!

Do they even make creationist textbooks for e-readers?

Hee-Hee.

Many schools have already begun using e-readers to address the cost and bulk and latest updates/versions.

I have no idea, but if there is a market, I wouldn't be surprised to see someone do it.

(Note: they are not all Creationists in Texas. It only seems so.)

What about taking the book home for homework? That seems to be a drawback to me.

I was only kidding about Texans; I know they’re not all creationists. Some are cowboys and secessionists!

(I have to add that so those nutty Texas militia members won't come gunning for me!)

Good question. It's much easier for cash-strapped parents to replace lost or damaged textbooks than it is to replace lost or damaged e-readers. There are many advantages to going digital, but children and teenagers aren't always the most careful of people around delicate electronic instruments!
