The idea that students would be willing to buy their own textbook is a common one among educators.
But there is a reason why students are taking their textbooks.
Many students are being taught in a way that they can’t control, and many teachers are unwilling to share their ideas or to teach in a manner that’s not geared to the needs of their students.
The problem is that textbooks are a necessary part of learning, but they can also be expensive.
If the price of textbooks increases, then many students will be forced to pay a bit more to go to school.
“There is a very real possibility that the costs of textbooks will increase as a result of this new, emerging technology,” says Anne Withers, a professor of education and education policy at the University of New South Wales.
And the cost of textbooks in Australia is high.
There are about 15,000 textbooks available in the country, according to the Australian Education Quality Council.
The Council’s latest data shows that students in primary schools and universities are spending about $5,000 on textbooks per year.
Of course, many students won’t have the time to pay that much, but many will be paying a bit extra to go.
“The textbooks that are being sold in the market today are generally expensive.
It’s just not cheap enough for students,” says Wither.
Some students may be paying up to $300 per book, which means that it will take some time for the textbooks to become popular among students.
There will also be some costs for the teachers who teach them.
“They’re going to be getting a lot more money in the long run from their textbooks, but that’s going to affect the quality of the teaching they get, so it will affect the amount of time they can dedicate to the classroom,” says Dr Wither, adding that some teachers may not be able to keep up with the demand for their work.
“This is a great opportunity for teachers to have access to the best of the best,” says Ms Steeve.
“It’s going for about $200, so the price may not go up significantly, but there’s going be a big difference between the cost per book and the cost to teachers.”
A price tag of $600 to $1,200 per textbook may not seem like much, when you think about the education that students are going to have to put into the textbook.
But if the price is $600 per textbook, that’s about $1.5 million per year, or $15 million per student.
The cost to taxpayers is likely to be higher.
“If a student were to purchase their own books, and they are paid in dollars, that is still going to add up over time,” says Professor Wither’s colleague, Dr Jennifer Lee, from the University at Albany.
“You’re going back and forth between dollars and cents.”
The price tag for textbooks is going to increase, and students will need to choose between paying more for their textbooks or paying less.
This will have an impact on the quality and quantity of books that are sold in Australia.
“That’s going, as a student, into the pocketbook of the parents and the teachers and the parents’ friends,” says Mr Denton.
“Parents have to decide whether they want to subsidise teachers and parents and their friends and their parents’ kids.”
For many students, the decision will come down to whether they would like to be teaching at a public school or at a private school.
For most students, it’s easier to switch schools if the school offers a cheaper price for textbooks.
But it will also have an effect on what textbooks are offered to students.
Some of the more expensive textbooks, such as the one by Deloitte, are designed for private schools.
These are designed to be used by students from families with income below $80,000.
Some textbooks are designed specifically for public schools.
The Deloittes have been criticised by some parents, who have said that they were not able to make up for the cost by offering more expensive versions for their children.
This means that some students might not have the luxury of buying the same books as their peers.
“We need to make sure that the price that we offer to our students is going up to a level where it’s going into the pockets of parents and teachers and students,” said Ms Denton, adding: “The fact that parents are willing to pay more for books and we’re not offering a price that they’re willing to accept is a real problem for the quality education that we’re providing.”
For some students, a high price tag means they might not be as enthusiastic about the experience.
“In a way, you’re taking your own textbook with you.
You’re not taking a book that somebody else has prepared for you.
That can be really isolating,” says Mrs Denton’s daughter, Emma.
