Bill Requires School Districts To Provide Free Textbooks

Last updated on Thursday, February 1, 2018

(INDIANAPOLIS) - For some parents of students in public schools, every dollar is hard to come by.

A new proposal being considered by state lawmakers would help those parents pay for their child's schooling.

A bill introduced in Indiana's general assembly would require public schools to provide textbooks and other learning materials to students at no cost.

As it stands now, Indiana is one of just eight states that does not require public schools to provide books to students at no charge.
