Help, by the Book.

      Most of us are going to universities and collages next year and will be facing all kinds of expenses. According to a 2005 study by the Government Accountability Office, they have found that book costs have nearly tripled over some two decades. The state of Washington has just passed a law “requiring textbook companies to disclose prices and other relevant information when they market books to college professors in the state.” Lawmakers  hope that professors will pick more reasonably priced textbooks, so students can afford them. This law is a good step toward lowering textbook prices. Well for now we just have to deal with the pakage of getting a good education, which includes high textbook prices.
