Yea there isnt that many states that charge for book rental its not right at all I paid almost 400.00 for 3 kids and they are in K , 4th and 6th grade . we pay high taxes and I think that money should go towards the book rental !!!

No the kicker to this is that the children are not even able to bring all of their books home because there are not enough to go around. The books have to be left in the class room daily. So my question is how are you to help the children who need to study harder more then just in the class room time given. I have a 7th grade child who was always an A B student. that now has a B C average and im not sure how to help her w/O the school book. Thanks PORTAGE SCHOOLS

Good Luck to all our medicalstaff trying to get ahead. and yes she did get used books, now outdated.

here in new mexico there is no book rental fee from kindergarden to graduateing , they just have to buy their own school supplies , like paper , pencils etc . saves us parents alot of money . and our house taxes , license plates etc is cheaper , here indiana is making lots of money off people..
