Kindle in the California Public Schools?

The AP (Associated Press) is reporting a potential change that could impact the entire United States public school system. When large states like, say, California and Texas make significant changes in what's happening in their public schools, the rest of the country is often forced to follow. Publishers and suppliers follow the money.

"In the state that gave the world Facebook, Google and the iPod, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says forcing California's students to rely on printed textbooks is so yesterday.

The governor recently launched an initiative to see if the state's 6 million public school students can use more online learning materials, perhaps saving millions of dollars a year in textbook purchases."

Here's the link to the article as it appears in The Washington Post:

I don't know what to say. In a way, it will be useful to students but I fear that the printed forms of books would vanish forever. That would be such a tragedy.
