Share Tweet Email

September 23, 2014 — Indiana Public Broadcasting — At the beginning of each school year, families in Indiana’s public schools are hit with bills that include activity fees, class fees and the largest line item– textbook fees.

Textbook rental fees cost parents on average about 100 dollars per child. Indiana is one of only eight states to charge for textbooks and, as StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny (Mack-in-er-nee) explains, state superintendent of public instruction Glenda Ritz is fighting to eliminate the fee.
